Anyhow, IMO this metadata is useless.
For example my company (and vast majority of other vendors) use source .tar.gz
and produces .jar (and signs it for security purposes)
This is obviously not done using SVN so we always have a UNKNOWN SCM tag inside
manifest. Of course this is usually handled by invoking
mvn -Prelease"`date -R`" ...

As you can see, makes no sense to have something if its easily overridden,
particularly if someone thinks this is some kind of proof the binaries were
build from some particular branch or tag.
