I think we should give the problem to the maven developers by using  
the remote-resource-plugin and including the output:-)  It adds a  
notice file that includes a list of the source of all (compile IIUC)  
dependencies.  Here's what it came up with for the apache-server-jndi  
jar:

There are  a couple of missing bits such as for antlr, I think  
there's a way to compensate for that, I'll look into it.

So, judging by this the "includes" attribution is appropriate for any  
dependency.  I won't argue with that as long as we are consistent and  
complete.

thanks
