I don't understand this, if I, as a lucene committer, can arbitrarily
publish commons CSV artifacts under maven, without being a commons CSV
committer, then why does someone have to be a lucene committer to publish
maven artifacts?!

Furthermore, if this is possible, then why does lucene itself have to
support maven, if someone else (e.g. hibernate) can simply download our jar
files and do the same?

I'm not sure we supported it, it seems to be a broken feature in nearly
every release.
