Ah good question. I looked back at what my guys sent me: "The counts we
provided are for total GA and unique artifactId" which means the classified
artifacts (sources and javadoc) were not counted. I'm not sure the Sources
and Javadoc plugins insert the properties into there. For projects that do
produce executable jars that are classified, the maven-jar-plugin would
have been used so those would still have the pom.properities in it. In
other words, its a function of which plugin created the jar (jar, sources,
javadoc) and not if it has a classifier or not.
