One difference I've noticed between maven packaging in EPEL7 and

%pom_remove_plugin (and maybe other tools).
I've seen this "-r" flag used more and more, but it means keeping the
branch divergent from the Fedora branches, and that's a bit frustrating.
It's not a huge deal, but it would be convenient if the EPEL7 branch
supported the "-r" flag on these macros.
POM macros and Maven macros are provided by javapackages-tools package,
which is part of base RHEL. EPEL could theoretically override them, but
it's not as simple as it may sound - these macros are just thin wrappers
around the actual implementation in Python, so you would need to package
other parts of javapackages too.
