I'd recommend to check if new reverse-dependencies require a newer
version at all. If they don't then I wouldn't worry. If they do then
check what Maven artifacts are listed as dependencies in the pom.xml
file. For instance if only core.jar is required you could simply create
a new source package and use the sources from Maven central. You can
even use javahelper for such simple packages. I believe core ships only
4-5 java files. You could simply use jh_build to build the jar file like
that (com is the directory that contains all the sources)

	jh_build core.jar com

If you need more just merge the sources from Maven central into your
custom orig tarball.
