If I understand correctly, this is already what we do: package every
piece of software used by an application or a library, put them in
Debian, and then package the software. Look at the dependencies field

That's what I propose in 3°, but not a local one, a remote one,
managed by DD's with jars only from debs.

You can configure maven to look at debian repo at first and if the
software is not there, look in another repo.
