Requires updating plexus-utils to 3.2.0 and modello to 1.10.0.
Replaces dependency on compat guava20 with non-compat guava.

This package has changed maintainer in the Fedora.
Reassigning to the new maintainer of this component.
The code was committed but not built due to violation with current policy.
According to current modules policy  modular packages can only exist as alternative versions.
Since Maven 3.6 exists as non-modular package in Fedora, modular Maven 3.6 is not allowed according to the policy.
