Hi Santiago,

I read on the general list that you were having back problems, and I  
hope you are feeling better now.
Please do remove the jars to comply with Apache's redistribution rules.

I would like to see Maven used in the Jetspeed build eventually, but I  
don't plan on doing so in the near future, so please feel free to work  
on it yourself.
