I installed about 1100 packages today (I'm migrating to Arch from Void, old-time user from 2007). I noted that the maven package is one of just three in my admittedly rather large list of packages that installs in /opt (the other two I noted are discord and ghidra). I note that most packages that have something like an application root, place it under /usr/share (dotnet, java, wireshark, ant, etc many many). Java tooling specifically is installed under /user/share/java (I noted ant, fop, gradle amongst others).

In the interest of consistency, I would request that the maven package is installed under /usr/share/java/maven instead of in /opt/maven.

I'm creating an issue for the discord and ghidra packages as well.
This task depends upon
