I could care less that it is Maven. What I care about is that you are  
discussing a build (and one that has bugs in it apparently), not a  
release. As I said, the only discussions I've seen on this list  
regarding tools that projects use have been that that is pretty  
liberal. For example, I recall seeing a project mention something  
about IBM donating a WebSphere license for testing purposes. No one  
had a problem with that. So I wonder why you are posting an email that  
talks about a build process and complains about bugs in the process on  
the legal discuss list. Take it up with the project first. If you  
don't get satisfactory resolution then come back.
