I already spoke to David Caro about the jenkins failure of=20
. It seems the files

It seems that the pom on jboss repository has a checksum that does not

Any of you have any contact with the guys that maintain that repo (or
know about who can know about?)
I seem to be unable to find any contant in the repo itself...
Anyhow, I've disabled the checksum checking and just pass through, so
it should not complain about unable to download it (it might fail due
