I’m not a Maven maven, but more of a Maven klutz. Nonetheless, I’ve managed to push a Mavenized version of JHOVE to Github that compiles for me. I haven’t tried to do anything beyond compiling. If anyone would like to help clean it up, please do.
This kills the continuity of file histories which Andy worked so hard to preserve, since Maven has its own ideas of where files should be. The histories are available under the deleted files in their old locations, if you look at the original commit.
