Thank you fo offering your help. I got a look at the package and it
seems it's already built with javahelper. It simply uses
maven-repo-helper to install the Maven artifacts in the
/usr/share/maven-repo directory. So if you'd like to upgrade the package
you just have to update the Maven pom in debian/maven-meta

libclasslojure-clojure is missing the Maven artifacts, it would be a
good idea to add them in a future update.

Let us know if you need any help. You can contact the members of the
Java Team on the debian-java mailing list or on IRC, they'll be happy to
guide you.
