Benjamin Reed commented on ZOOKEEPER-83:

I think it might be good to separate out the issues here. Two of them I see 
are: 1) Use Maven instead of ANT to build because Maven is so much better. 2) 
Make it so that ZooKeeper can be added to a Maven repository.

I'm not really convinced about 1), but 2) seems like a cool thing. I believe 
there is a way to use ANT to create Maven modules for the repository right?

> Maven is a great too for building java projects at the ASF.  It helps 
> standardize the build a bit since it's a convention oriented.
> It's dependency auto downloading would remove the need to store the 
> dependencies in svn, and it will handle many of the suggested ASF policies 
> like gpg signing of the releases and such.
> The ZooKeeper build is almost vanilla except for the jute compiler bits.  
> Things that would need to change are:
>  * re-organize the source tree a little so that it uses the maven directory 
> conventions
>  * seperate the jute bits out into seperate modules so that a maven plugin 
> can be with it
