** Summary changed:

- [needs-packaging] maven2
+ [New Package Freeze Upstream] maven2-2.0.7

** Description changed:

  Software project management and comprehension tool. A tool that can be
  used for building and managing any Java-based project.
  
  This tool is used to build lots of Java software and none of them can be
  packaged until maven is available. JPackage has already packaged Maven 2
  as a RPM.
  
  http://maven.apache.org/
  http://www.jpackage.org/browser/rpm.php?jppversion=1.7&id=2274
+ 
+ Version 2.0.7 of Maven2 is finally available as a deb package from
+ Debian upstream
+ 
+ Source package:
+ http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/m/maven2/
+ 
+ Reasons to include:
+ Maven2 has quickly become the build tool of choice for Java projects, and having the capability to aptitude install it would only foster Ubuntu adoption and contribute to generating news like http://www.ubuntu.com/news/java-stack-included-in-ubuntu
+ The existence of duplicates and a good number of subscribers proves there's demand for the package. It would be great if this could made it's way into Gutsy and maybe be back ported to at leas the LTS editions.
+ This being a new package and thus not being depended by any other package assures that minimal disruption would occur.
