It seems that something broke your plexus-component-metadata pom for 1.5.x 
AFAICT, maven-ant-helper seems to corrupt something : I've compared a rebuild
of plexus-component-metadata in a sid chroot versus original package actually
in sid, and metadata is different.
I'll check in maven-ant-helper soon.
