I hope that we can convince them to make this change. However, I 
understand their need to not update notice and license files manually, 
so that must be automated.

Wow, thanks for your ongoing efforts! I know that this is a hard work 
especially because there is no 1:1 dependency between pom jars and 
versioned jars.

I must admit that I do not like maven either. However, the idea of 
dependency management is a good one. We are using gradle which has 
increased our "build-happiness" a lot in comparison to times when we 
were using ant and maven.
