not really: there are quite a lot of areas where work is needed before
maven will produce compliant releases. AIUI the maven team are have
been working hard on a lot of these areas and it's a lot better now.

i've taken a quick look and the maven 2 repository is much worse than
the old one used to be

jar names should include 'apache'. unless jar names include 'apache'
we have no ability to ensure that others do not produce jars with the
same name. probably need to go and remind them that they still have it
very wrong.

every artifact id should include 'apache'

mvn -U -Plocal package works for me now

i recommend adding a top level BUILDING.txt file giving building instructions

best to have them at the top of the source tree in svn

it's not a legal question but an infra question

all apache releases require LICENSE and NOTICE. source releases should
be the primary form of release for apache projects. source releases
are formed by svn export. if the source lacks top level LICENSE and
NOTICE files then it's hard to create compliant releases.

seems wrong to me that maven actively conflicts with the use of an svn
export to create a proper source release
