Just my opinion: (personally i do not use maven, nor understand it).

If maven support is beneficial to bringing more devs to lucene, we should
consider what we can do.
But at the same time, perhaps Makefiles would bring more devs, too.

My problem with releasing with maven is that i could not honestly even +1 my
own release artifacts, because i don't know what the hell is going on with
the maven artifacts.

There has to be a way to let the "maven experts" take care of this stuff
somehow, if its really going to be beneficial.
