Ok, I have just removed README.source. I think it is a bit confusing.

I find that really strange because I thought the latest Git snapshot
would fix the bug.

Like burning all those -doc packages? :)

In my opinion we could ask Robert Scholte for advice. He is chairman of
Apache Maven and directly involved in fixing this bug. If he doesn't

However I think I have found a workaround, and we all love workarounds,
don't we.

In your initial post you pointed to a related bug report. [1] That made
me think and also read the fine Maven Javadoc documentation. There is an
option called detectJavaApiLink


If I add

detectJavaApiLink=false to debian/maven.properties in libparanamer-java,
the package builds from source again.

Maybe we should patch our tools and set this property to false and move
on for now? Hopefully in a few months this will just work again without
changing this option, when maven-javadoc-plugin et al. have been
catching up?
