Package: maven-debian-helper
Version: 2.1.1
Severity: normal

maven-debian-helper seems unable to ignore a module no defined in a direct child
directory relatively to its parent pom.

This can be observed with the carrotsearch-randomizedtesting/2.1.6 package,
there are two modules under the 'examples' directory directly referenced
in the parent pom:


There is no pom.xml in the examples directory, and the parent pom declares
these modules with:


The --ignore flag in debian/*.poms has no effect in this case (the rewritten pom.xml
still define them).
