Bug#740554: mangles classpath in upstream manifest

Package: maven-ant-helper
Version: 7.7
Severity: important

In debian/build.properties (for the jmxetric package) I have


to copy the upstream manifest

The manifest contains:

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Premain-Class: info.ganglia.jmxetric.JMXetricAgent
Boot-Class-Path: oncrpc-${oncrpc.version}.jar
Can-Redefine-Classes: false

The long line is messed up in the JAR produced by maven-ant-helper:

a) the long line is broken

b) the version substitution is not done

As a workaround, I can supply a modified manifest instead
