Hi all,

As you may have noticed I have updated many Maven related packages
recently, and I'd like to summarize quickly what I'm doing and where

first of all thank you very much for updating this core build tool for Java.

Maven in testing/unstable is currently at the latest upstream release
(3.5.0). The most visible change since Maven 3.3.9 is the colored

Once all of this is over I'd like to invest some time on
maven-debian-helper to better support multi module projects. I have 3
improvements in mind:

Sounds good to me.
