OK.  Does that mean the groupId for FOP and XML Graphics Commons is
wrong?  (It says <groupId>org.apache.xmlgraphics</groupId> in the POM
file for both.)

It is a real dependency.  In fact FOP can work with Batik 1.7, since
we’ve maintained compatibility, but I suppose the dependency on the
exact 1.6-1 version prevents this from working nicely.  I’ll do as you
say then and have an exclusion to prevent Batik 1.6-1 from coming in.

OK cool.

What’s the difference?  Artifacts in the m1-… directory can be used by
both Maven 1 and 2, but those in the m2-… directory can only be used by
Maven 2?  (/me is a bit clueless about the difference between Maven 1
and 2).
