If you develop FOR your users, you should try to make your project released to a Maven Repository. Agree? If you question this, I will be glad to discuss the benefits next time.

You may be able to invent some automation to help on the manual labor, by developing your building tool to handle releases to Maven Repository, but this would be a serious reinvention of the wheel.

For the Maven Repository, if there are barriers to projects getting uploaded if they *don't* use Maven as their build system (and there do seem to be barriers), then yes the Maven Repository is going to be out of date - for a lot of projects, not just JFreeChart.

I am afraid you are just being religious.
