doesn't work like that, the metadata has groupId information and you
can't point two folders to the same metadata

I have copied the jars to org.apache.poi and fixed the poms
The one in poi redirects to org.apache.poi
The one in org.apache.poi has the dependency, license and all the
other info, please check it into subversion for next releases

you can't do just a symlink for the metadata.
As it stands right now people using "poi" location for 3.0-FINAL will
get a warning that it has moved to "org.apache.poi" so they update
their dependencies accordingly

I could give you my word as a Spaniard.
No good. I've known too many Spaniards.
