In our project, I'm trying to use PlantUML. I see the impact and we tried another approach but now I think we really need this in Maven.
For this, I believe we need to host the MIT / Apache version on github. I guess the challenge is to maintain both versions, but since you are doing it already, couldn't you just do it on github already? I don't know what is the best way - perhaps create a fork for the MIT-licensed code?
I was told that once we have the apache / mit licensed code in a github repo, then we just have to create a ticket on issues.sonatype.org which should promote this to Maven.
Is this something you can do - maintain the code in github? I do not know if there are any other implications. I think we can also create the repo, but it's your code :)
Thank you for making PlantUML so awesome that we really want it :)
