From what I can see, only MJAVADOC-475 is not really *critical* to the
release as it's just a new feature. The other two issues, MJAVADOC-457
and MJAVADOC-499, seem to be important. The former has been fixed, and
the latter appears to be leaning towards being rejected. I would really
appreciate an M2 release if MJAVADOC-475 is going to otherwise delay

If there's anything I can do to assist, I'm available. Right now,
MJAVADOC-498 would appear to prevent the deployment of any modular
project to Maven Central: If module A in the project depends
on module B, then JavaDoc cannot be generated. This would necessitate
adding a temporary workaround that submits an empty javadoc jar to
Central (otherwise the Central ruleset rejects the deployment due to
missing JavaDoc). I have some 30-40 projects that are itching to be
deployed but can't be unless I add a workaround or build and deploy a
custom version of the plugin myself. I'd obviously prefer not to have
to do that.
