FYI, it looks like that ppa hasn't been updated in 2 years.

There's this other one here if you updated line 2. This form also downloads the gpg key so it doesn't complain about untrusted packages.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andrei-pozolotin/maven3

Thanks for the tip!

What are the integrity guarantees inherent in using such rather private ppa's?
