But I’m not sure it currently makes sense to create a Maven branch.
I don’t think I’m merging it in any time soon and I’m perfectly happy building with ant. I’m not going to spend time fixing Maven builds if they break on the branch, so I’m not sure there’s any benefit in doing so.
That said; if you want to create the maven build, I will not stand in your way.
Here you go your private tlf pipeline on Jenkins :) . Compiler and typdefs are building ok, but FlexJS failed cause rat complains about some un-approved files license.
I did also ceate for tests pom for Text module  and build failed with lots of errors. If you do not experience any errors building by Ant that's not good. Maybe Maven is a bit more restrict about some things. You need to try on your own. Copy pom  to Text folder and run mvn clean install - There is possibility that some dependencies are missing, but not sure what Text module need in order to build. I add only Core and Binding.
