Description of problem:
Maven contains some dependencies pulling in additional packages that are not strictly needed (at least several *-parent packages),
Basically: yum install maven should not install any maven plugins.
I believe that this bug is fixed in maven-3.0.4-30,
which is available in Fedora Rawhide. I am closing the bug now,
thank you for reporting it. A summary of changes is included below.
