Does Maven Central automatically mirror jars from repository.apache.org? Or were
these jars uploaded there manually?

Do you have any recommendation for the replacement plan? Would users be fine
with releases not including libgfortran.so? Thus the releases will only work on
machines that come with libgfortran.so preinstalled. Or can we just ask them to
build from source? I don't think anyone has volunteered yet to handle fixing the
old JVM releases, so the current requirement may be to ask JVM users to build
from source.
