Affects Version/s: maven-archiver-2.4
Fix Version/s: None

In the current implementation of the JAR packaging, the POM file is copied as is to META-INF/maven/groupId/artifactId/pom.xml. The POM inheritance makes this file useless to identify this artifact outside the maven environment.
In the parent POM
in the child POM
The child POM now declare dependency to junit:junit but there is no way to identify the version, scope or classifier and therefore i suggest attach a modified version of the POM to the artifact JAR file to provide the full information without inheritance or variables, so its become:
Its very useful to make the artifact standalone and identifiable by any external systems.
