We probably need to get together a how-to or tutorial in using the
code.  If you can document your experiences with it, we'd be very
interested in including that into a README or a github page for the

Yes, I haven't done this yet, but we will need to do it in order for
the new code for DSpace to be accepted into the main release.  I don't
have a lot of experience with publishing maven artifacts, so up until
now I've been just installing it into my local maven repository when
using it.  Glad to accept any help in getting it done!

Excellent - really cool to see this kind of thing happening!
