Minor nitpicks:

1/ commons-vfs-parent.pom declares own snapshot repositories. Is it still 
necessary? Such declarations are not recommended by Maven folks anyway.
2/ commons-vfs.pom contains a comment that the TestSuites are not executed. 
This is no longer true for the version of the used surefire plugin.
