I think cvsnt doesn't support z3 compression, but I'm not sure.

Yes, it's an omission in maven-scm code. If you filed an issue in maven-scm project, we

Your expression isn't correct, it must be 0 0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * ?

We don't use db job storage, we store only cron expressions.
