You are not the first.
It does tend to create a lot of traffic here until the person gets their 
basic Maven processes under control and develops their own roadmap for

I did not expect that it would fit exactly but I did want to show one 
line of thinking about versioning of artifacts.

We do import jars as well.
Ours came from external projects that had licensing reasons for not 
pushing their artifacts to Maven Central.

You manually put the jars in your Maven repo through its manual upload 
procedure with some version number (nice if it relates to the version 
that the authors gave them) and reference them as dependencies.
Maven does not really deal with SVN as a jar source.
