This does not help, since it is no POM issue! Maven may select the version declared in the
POM but it does not have to. So it is quite brain dead for any library to define a fix classpath
in the manifest. Do the devs know with which other libs and deps they're users have to be
compatible? E.g. we're running FOP with complete different avalon artifacts ...
