[visad] VisAD through maven


I have a question related to VisAD distribution.
I noticed there is a maven-based build of VisAD on Github: 
The official VisAD sources are ant-based.
Is there any plan to switch the build system to maven?
And (here is my point), is there any plan to publish VisAD jars into the 
official Maven Central repository?
That would make life easier for people who embed VisAD into their projects 
(like us :)

I recently assisted with publishing Jmol into Maven Central through the 
Sonatype Open Source repository 
If you would like to go the same way, I can do the same for VisAD.

Best regards,
