to elaborate more for you, 6.0.x is our current 6.0 release branch.
We are using RTC, Review-Then-Commit policy here, and introducing maven 
into a stable release branch like this, is probably not the best idea.
What you should focus your proposal on, is our "trunk" that doesn't yet 
exist. Once we have a trunk, ideas and contributions get discussed and 
added there, then they can be suggested for a back port.

At this moment, we don't have a trunk, but you can assume that there 
will be one
