Commons does not have pom.xml for its components. Them pom files you 
find at the repositories (i.e. ibiblio) are converted by a piece of 
software from our (Maven 1) project.xml files. This conversion is made 
automatically. We are able to add some comments in our project.xml files 
to fix some of the conversion problems.

So a couple of examples would be nice. Then I can check to see what the 
problems might be and if/how we can solve them.
