Why Stripes does not have maven?

After I moved to maven 2 years ago, It is really hard to imagine a turn back to Ant.

I really love maven. What abt author's or sheriff's idea?

Different people prefer and use different tools. (Not to start a pointless this-vs-that debate, but if you search the net you'll find that many people actually dislike Maven. I have no idea if that's the case here, and anyway this is not the place to discuss it.)
I'm sure if you want to contribute to Stripes you can work this out with the other developers, though.

Like Ulf said, some people like Maven, some people do not. Personally, I do not like Maven. I learned it and used it, even liked it, but ran into some very annoying issues. I'm not here to debate about it; I accept people who choose Maven, please accept people who do not.

Maven is not used to build Stripes itself, but that should not be a concern; only if you wish to build Stripes from the source do you even need to know that Stripes uses Ant. And even then, the script is already written, you just have to run Ant.
