There are cultural issues as well as technical issues to adopting Maven. Most folks involved with Lucene are familiar with using Ant and maintaining an Ant-based build system. So merely converting Lucene to be built by Maven will not cause everyone who currently works on Lucene to become willing and able to to use Maven on a daily basis.

Long-term, we probably should not attempt to maintain two official build systems. But, short-term, it would be useful for developers to be able to evaluate Maven, then discussion can begin about whether the project should switch to Maven as its primary build system.

I would not mind introducing Maven builds in Lucene. It would solve /at least/ this problem. And it would merge so great with my other projects. :) I'd be happy to help out , but there are some wicked anting going on in a lot of build.xml:s so I would probably need a lot of help from the contributors understanding whats going on.

Most of the build scripts could be halfway housed using maven-antrun-plugin.

I'm open to Maven builds, for the record. I'll do what I can to help with understanding any of the wicked anting in there, but I don't know Maven so the best I'll be able to do is explain what is going on. The main complexity we have is the contrib area, oh and JavaCC... the rest is straightforward stuff.

I'll see what I can do this weekend.
