Sounds like a sensible approach.

We knew about the problem early on, but weren't prepared to make the core
changes required to do this at the stage Maven was at. Sometimes to keep a
project moving forward, you don't want the "bleeding edge".

What I was thinking was that you would generate the from
the list of gumped projects, rather than dependencies. If a project is not
gumped, the dependency will have to come from a repository anyway, right?
How do you intend to handle this case as projects come on board that use
non-ASF libraries?

No problem. Just say when.
