IMO when updating external dependencies, the tests should not only include
the fact that it can be built on all the platforms we support, but
mainly regressions tests that test if the functionality of the code that
dependes on these external dependencies is still working.

The steps would be:

1. make sure it builds
2. identify the code that depends on the dependency
3. test that the functionality still works.

This is valid also for the apache commons update you did recently.
