I just noticed some other projects include more info in the jar manifests about their provenance using something like this:

     <plugin>
       <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
       <artifactId>maven-jar-plugin</artifactId>
       <configuration>
         <archive>
           <index>true</index>
           <compress>true</compress>
           <manifestEntries>
             <Implementation-Vendor>Apache Software Foundation</Implementation-Vendor>
             <Implementation-Vendor-Id>org.apache</Implementation-Vendor-Id>

             <Package>org.apache.activeio</Package>
             <Extension-Name>${project.artifactId}</Extension-Name>
             <Implementation-Version>${project.version}</Implementation-Version>

           </manifestEntries>
         </archive>
       </configuration>
     </plugin>


Would this be a good idea?  I guess we could pop something like this in the project pom.

Not sure whether or not I'll have time to play with this.
