Um, no, you didn't. You may have run the Maven release plugin, but
there was no vote, so there is no release.

If it doesn't _need_ to be built against the latest, unreleased,
struts-master, there's no need to change anything.

I will point out again, though, that just running the Maven release
plugin does *not* constitute a release. It's only a release if there
is a PMC vote to make it a release. If a release vote fails, for
whatever reason, then any artifact that was automatically uploaded by
Maven must be removed, so that it is not misinterpreted as a release.
