I can't really help with comaintaining, but in Fedora/Java land we quite
often solve problems as a group. So if you'll hit specific problems with
the package and send email to java-devel (or drop by #fedora-java at the
right time), someone will help out. We have quite a few provenpackagers
and unwritten agreement between most of us that we fix up each other's
packages. Unless the package has big dependency changes between
releases, the maintenance burden should be pretty small.

It seems only the server part is Java and it has close to zero
dependencies (except protobuf, which we have in fedora). You should be
able to build it without problem. If you don't feel comfortable, don't
build the Java/server part and someone can create server subpackage
patches once the package is in Fedora. 

Good luck!
