This "authoratitiveness" comes with a significant cost, that is the
complexity of maven in our release process.  I'm not convinced its worth
this cost, and before we decide to have maven as part of the release, i'd
like for there to be an actual vote.

Sorry to change my tone, but I was under the impression we needed a lucene
committer to do all this releasing work to support maven, it seems that this
is not the case, and other options are available.
