Package: maven-debian-helper
Version: 1.4.4
Severity: normal

When using the maven cdbs class, a jar file that presumably should contain all
the generated javadoc is installed under /usr/share/maven-repo/. However, this
jar file actually contains all the class files and is basically the same as the
main jar file for the package.

The -javadoc.jar is created as part of the normal build, but the install step
copies the wrong source. The code that is responsible for this copy action is
called SysInstallDocMojo.

I found many *-java-doc packages that suffer from having the wrong jar file. It
can be observed e.g. as follows:

dpkg-deb --extract 
jar tf 

I'm running Ubuntu oneiric, so the versions I have are somewhat behind, but I
did check the latest version of maven-debian-helper in sid and found the issue
persists there.
