Hi Daniel, maven-ant-helper was useful to build the Maven dependencies when Maven wasn't packaged yet (or to break circular dependencies). It's a limited implementation of the Maven lifecycle using only Ant, and it can't really aim at being on par with Maven in all areas. For jmxetric I would advise using maven-debian-helper instead.
