maven-wagon lacks WebDAV provider

Description of problem:
I'm trying to package xstream, a java library to serialize objects to XML (and
back). It depends upon the WebDAV component of maven-wagon. I would like this
component to be included in Fedora's maven-wagon package.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Sorry Matt -- I should have filed here first.
The version of maven-wagon currently in fedora doesn't have the WebDAV
component. To get the new version with WebDAV support will require bringing in a
bunch of new dependencies (WebDAV, slide (or possible jackrabbit), and all of
Does xstream actually need WebDAV? is it used as part of the core, as a separate
plugin, or just during building (ie for writing tests, or for running some other
maven plugin that not a requirement).
I don't know if it actually needs it or not; I don't know much about maven. I
followed the maven java packaging guidelines template spec, and the builds
fails because it's missing the WebDAV provider.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Closing as I don't care about this package (xstream) anymore.
