I finally managed to create all the release artifacts. The problem was that 
hardly any (or nobody) of the committers is using Maven 2 with Java 1.4. (The 
funny thing is that our Continuum instance does not suffer from this problems.) 
This combination leads to some problems and I was tired of fixing them just for 
the sake of a release.

I think for 2.2 it is fine to stick with Java 1.4 and go for Java 5 with 2.3. 
This should also give the Websphere 6 users enough time and is for all the Java 
  5 fans motivation to make 2.3 happen soon ;-)
