Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-551) Make Lucene - Java 1.9.1 Available in Maven2 repository in

Martin Cooper commented on LUCENE-551:

To your question #1, the Maven people cannot track every release of every artifact across
all open source organisations, which is basically what is maintained in the Maven repository.
There used to be a mechanism whereby a PMC could request that their artifact be loaded into
the repository; I'm not sure if that mechanism still exists, given that there is a local ASF
repository that is automatically synced to the main Maven one.

To your question #2, Maven is a repository-based build system. It automatically downloads
dependencies for a project based on the dependency information provided in the project's POM
(Project Object Model). With Maven 2, it also automatically downloads transitive dependencies.
This is an awesome improvement over other build systems such as Ant, which leaves you to manage
your own dependecies. In order that Maven can locate and download the appropriate jar files,
those jar files must be deployed to the Maven repository. It wouldn't be realistic to expect
Maven to be able to locate and extract jar files from within a binary distribution, given
that there is no standard way that these are packages and distributed.
