 For instance, in Solr, we had a trunk based version of Commons CSV at one point, so we put
it up w/ the Solr artifacts and had the POM reflect that.  But yeah, it can be a pain.

to be a lucene committer to publish maven artifacts?!

It's under the Solr area, not the commons CSV area.

Nah, some times some pieces are broken, but the core one always works, AFAICT.  ;-)
