i wasn't aware of this ant.d mechanism; i found that a bunch of packages
need to be added there, should i open a bug for each one? or just
add it as additional info in the bug requesting to make maven-ant-tasks
it turns also out that one of the needed classes is in
which is provided by maven2 main package; if we want to get rid of maven2
completely i think it has to be split in a package on its own
The thing is: maven2 package has been split into smaller chunks.
And of course main maven2 package. We did this to more easily figure
out what parts of maven2 are still required by our packages. I went
jar-by-jar as they were needed. Now it seems I'll create another
subpackage for error-diagnostics. It would be ideal if upstream simply
got rid of those dependencies or split those parts into separate
projects, but I won't hold my breath for it.
Problem is that some package that used to BR/R maven2 should now
require one or more of the above subpackages. While not ideal, it's
the only sane way to slowly phase-out maven2. If nothing else at least
we'll know which packages still require it.

ok, bug also has already been taken care of ;)
Forgot to thank you and Stanislav for taking care of the packages I own
and that i have a little overlooked lately!
I have as well? Heh, I guess since I became provenpackager I've been
committing everywhere without looking much (usually the problems took
less time to fix than filing of a bugreport). I am just glad I haven't
stepped on anyone's toes yet...
