Source: velocity
Version: 1.7-4
Severity: serious

When I rebuild velocity using pbuilder, the build succeeds; however, the 
result only has a couple dependencies as compared to the set in the official 

# dpkg-deb -I /var/cache/pbuilder/result/velocity_1.7-4_all.deb 
 new debian package, version 2.0.

 Description: Java-based template engine for web application
  Velocity is a Java-based template engine. It permits anyone to use
  the simple yet powerful template language to reference objects
  defined in Java code.
  When Velocity is used for web development, Web designers can work in
  parallel with Java programmers to develop web sites according to the
  Model-View-Controller (MVC) model, meaning that web page designers
  can focus solely on creating a site that looks good, and programmers
  can focus solely on writing top-notch code. Velocity separates Java
  code from the web pages, making the web site more maintainable over
  the long run and providing a viable alternative to Java Server Pages
  (JSPs) or PHP.

(The way I discovered this is in my archive rebuild scripts that dogfood the 
results to build other packages.  Without the dependency of velocity on ant, 
maven-debian-helper no longer indirectly pulls in ant, and I've started seeing 
a few packages that FTBFS because of that.)
