This is a fake dependency for the unit tests loading a configuration 
from a JAR in the classpath. The file resources.jar is packaged with the 
distribution and we use the maven.jar.override property to redirect 
Maven on it.

That's right, I'll change this.

... or add the necessary clarification to make it safe for us.

Findbugs is a tool processing the code, it doesn't make the code a 
derivative of findbugs. While the plugin may be affected by the LGPL, 
the code of commons configuration does not.

Thanks for the feedback Brett.
