A note to everyone. We are working hard to phase out maven2 as much as 
possible so as much as this may look like the perfect solution (adding BR on 
maven2) this is just a temp solution as noone (including maven2) maintainers 
is looking at it. It is still there just as a library provider and at the time 
it stops working it is more likely that we will drop the executables to 
prevent people to run it and make it build itself with maven (3.x) instead of 
testing and fixing maven2.
One would better spend his time to make his build work with maven (3.x) unless 
he/she is ready to step in as maven2 maintainer. The changes needed are very 
easy - usually s/mvn-jpp/mvn-rpmbuild/ and 
s/maven2.jpp.depmap.file/maven.local.depmap.file/ . The rest is just things that 
are not needed anymore but should not break things like defining 
MAVEN_REPO_LOCAL and passing it to mvn-jpp.

P.S. Ville is just the last one I've seen doing that which made me writing 
this mail.
