OTOH releasing code without tests is...well, suboptimal. But nobody's
perfect of course.

In Hendrik's case IIUC the tests are present but somewhat broken by
depending on Maven snapshots, which makes it a buggy release - but
releases are not always perfect either, and I suspect in their case
the workaround is easy: release said snapshot and instruct people to
replace the appropriate references. That makes it a just a known issue
in that release, with a known workaround.
