This is somewhat off topic from versioning. I was specifically calling 
out using a property for the artifact version. To leave that in the pom 
when it is deployed is just wrong. I can think of all kinds of other 
properties that shouldn't be replaced, so full interpolation is clearly 

I'm also a little unclear on the integration tests. I see a couple of 
branches that appear to be for specific jira issues, but nothing else. 
How are different tests run against maven trunk vs 2.0.x?
