I'm afraid that old CP versions will turn up other problems (one
I recall would be "FindBugs" vs "SpotBugs") so that the cure would
be the same: release without the problematic module; and this is a
non-issue since it's mainly an illustration of the functionality
provided by the component, and some tools only useful during
development (for testing new RNG implementations).

Note also that only "mvn site" is affected.  Would it be possible
to separate the "site" goal from the rest of the goals used by the
release plugin? Instead of
  $ mvn -Prelease -Pcommons-rng-examples clean test site deploy
(which fails), we'd have
  $ mvn -Prelease clean test site
  $ mvn -Prelease -Pcommons-rng-examples deploy
The site would be missing info about the "examples" module, but
that's much of a problem than no release (and no site).
