Upgrading dependencies in a maintenance branch is a bit troublesome as
the risk of introducing unexpected problems is higher than with
simpler code changes. Thus the benefits should be carefully weighed
against the potential risk.

One way to reduce the potential impact is to only update the Tika
dependency in the war, rar, and standalone jar archives, but leave the
dependency in jackrabbit-core unchanged so we don't accidentally mess
up with transitive dependencies of downstream projects. A downstream
project that embeds Jackrabbit but still wants the Tika update can
still do so locally by explicitly upgrading the version of the Tika
