Hi Barbara,

You're reading that clause slightly wrong. "Uses" clauses don't have versions… the version
clause is actually attached to the exported package, i.e. com.acne.jar2.dto.

manifest, in order to keep the packaging element as "jar". However I have also tried the standard
usage of the plugin, with the packaging element as "bundle", but this has produced exactly
the same results.
