Looking for co-maintainers

Hello,

I'm looking for co-maintainers for the Guacamole [1] stack packages. It is
an HTML 5 plugin-less remote desktop for VNC, RDP, SSH, Telnet and Spice
(WIP). Upstream is really responsive, software is updated frequently and
it's really amazing.

I've been able to throw a bunch of Citrix XenApp servers, Terminal servers
and all the corollary tools away with it.

The software is split in the native server (guacamole-server) with relevant
plugins and a Java web application (guacamole-client) for the main
interface.

The software is fantastic, but the Java part gives me a lof of headaches
everytime there is a Java packaging guidelines change or a Maven bug. If
any Java guru would like to step in as co-maintainer of Guacamole it's
really welcome.

Currently guacamole-client is in FTBFS in rawhide [2] and I couldn't find
any help for fixing it due to a Maven bug [3], that requires a specific
Fedora workaround that I frankly don't understand [4]. On RHEL 7, and
Fedora 19/20 the same packages build fine.

[2] https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1106740
[3] http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MSHARED-325
[4]
https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/java-devel/2014-June/005273.html

I would like to fix it before the Alpha freeze, as there are a lot of users
out there using the stack with RHEL/Fedora.

Thanks & regards,
--Simone
