I meant 'maintained' in the apache-sense, of having 3 +1, etc. ( which AFAIK
is required  for
something to be 'officially' released ).

I'm sure Henri will maintain it  - and at some point it may even have the 3
+1s. As long as there is
no technical reason for a veto ( besides the 'don't break existing build' -
which I think he addressed ),
I don't see how to stop him.  I don't like Maven  -  but  I think  as long
as it  doesn't break anything
Henri is perfectly entitled to work on this.
