I have seen it happen with release builds of external projects too. One time we even saw a POM change where the jar file didn't, and amazingly, *that* was enough to break someone's build. (And that team is using Maven proper.) All the weird stuff with builds failing which just worked happened to us (and still happen to us) on Gradle as well. TX
