      Description

      Maven needs to be setup to do release management for the project. According to Incubator guidelines, the build system should be able to do everything to prepare a release.

      Furthermore, if jars are to be released, maven needs to be setup to include the proper files and include a proper manifest.

      The Maven project does have a parent pom that can do a lot of this:
