---------------------------------------

> I believe there is a way to use ANT to create Maven modules for the 
> repository right?

Yes.  This is what, e.g., Lucene does.

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/java/trunk/common-build.xml

> 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
