Subject Re: the case of the maven wrapper
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2019 00:54:15 GMT

excluded the wrapper due to perceived problems in performing change
inside the ASF

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-5937?focusedCommentId=16771456&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels%3Acomment-tabpanel#comment-16771456
