I probably could. I simply did not try yet, and relied only on what was
provided by the distribution.

My point is simply that requiring very specific tools or tools versions
that require specific knowledge or installation should be avoided if
possible. We don't have the resources to help users installing these
tools too.

require Maven 3 to build a commons component anyone can still use it in a Maven 2 build. They
only would require Maven 3 if they actually want to build one of our artifacts on their own.
