Thank you David, we need this kind of hints like gold, so next time feel 
free to use the <solicited> tag ;-)

shame on me: I checked for updates but I only updated the 
maven-remote-resources-plugin and not the resource bundle version!! :-(

I tested it now but it break our assembly because this way the "simple 
NOTICE" without references to junit and commons-logging references is 
included also in the bin with dependencies zip and in src with 
dependenciez zip.
I also don't understand why it is completely ignoring our 
src\main\appended-resources\supplemental-models.xml file, but I'll 
investigate a bit more on this, ASAP.

What is the advantage in a single module product? Most plugins are used 
only once: wouldn't this simply duplicate the size of the pom?

I used the resources you link many months ago when we made our first 
maven based release! Without that resourcs I could have never been 
success in accomplish the release process.

All of this stuff should be in our parent pom:

We used automatic sign/deploy/stage process for our mime4j and jspf 
releases and after few initial problems it worked very fine! I think I 
configured jSieve the same way, so it should work. Please let me know if 
I missed something!

I see them:

is there anything wrong?
