I see your point, but shouldn't this be discussed with the whole Maven2

None of the jars distributed by ASF via Maven repositories (*MANY*
products) have the apache name in the jar !?! (well maybe a couple of
them have this prefix.. but a couple vs thousands)

Should we change every of our artifactId to include "apache-" ? We have
org.apache.james in the groupId for every artifact, but we don't have
"apache" for the artifactId (as I said before I'm not aware of any other
project using "apache" in the artifactId apart the
apache-jar-resource-bundle-1.2.jar I just added to the local stage folder).

What's the error you get?

if it was the missing "apache-jar-resource-bundle" artifact I just added
it to the local repository (having it in the james-project local
repository hidden this problem to me).
Please tell me if this fixed your issue.

ok. added to the TODOs.

Do you mean the source tree in svn or the source package? I believe the
source package containes the NOTICE/LICENSE.
About the svn source tree I posted a question on legal-discuss but I
received no answer about this:

If they will reply that NOTICE and LICENSE are needed also in the svn
source tree then we should coordinate the Maven2 guys to avoid pushing
the use of the
combination because this leads to no LICENSE/NOTICE in the source tree.
