Re: [DISCUSS] [BEAM-4126] Deleting Maven build files (pom.xml) grace period?

I agree that we should delete the pom.xml files soon, as they create a burden for maintainers. 

I'd like to be able to extend the grace period by a bit, to allow the internal build systems at Google to move away from using the Beam poms.

We use these pom files to build Dataflow workers, and thus it's critical for us that they are available for a few more weeks while we set up a gradle build. Perhaps 4 weeks? 
(Calling out+Chamikara Jayalath who has recently worked on internal Dataflow tooling.)

Note: Apache Beam will still provide pom.xml for each release it produces. This is only about people using Maven to build Apache Beam themselves and not relying on the released artifacts in Maven Central.

With the first release using Gradle as the build system is underway, I wanted to start this thread to remind people that we are going to delete the Maven pom.xml files after the 2.5.0 release is finalized plus a two week grace period.

Are there others who would like a shorter/longer grace period?
