As Mark mentioned, the Geronimo community is building an EE6 Web Profile server and full EE6
profile, also. Current releases of Geronimo already provide custom assemblies which can provide
lighter-weight server runtimes (e.g. web container, only) customized to the needs of your
application(s). You'd be more than welcome to work with the Geronimo community. 

Regarding a maven build, Geronimo has a tomcat-archetype which can be used to create a Tomcat
maven build environment. You might want to check it out.
