Subject Re: maven.compile.source was: [vote] Release Commons Jelly 1.0 based on RC3

Right - I should have pointed that out about forking. Really, the plugin 
should automatically fork if executable is set...

For the manifest, this just indicates that the executing JVM was used to 
build the JAR and manifest.  It doesn't seem that useful to fork this 
with an old JDK - you could write those manifest entries yourself based 
on the JDK you selected.

In Maven 2, I'd hope that you would be able to select an entire external 
tool chain and apply it consistently so this doesn't happen.
