This is a bug, but I don't consider it showstopper.
- How likely is it that a customer will hit the bug?
Not very likely. This bug is only encountered by maven users consuming glassfish.zip as a maven dependency in their project. It does not impact our download bundles.
- How severe is the customer impact?
Low. There is no loss of data or functionality. It is annoying that all dependencies are downloaded by maven, but functionally things work.
Is this a regression? Yes, the 3.X glassfish.zip artifact does not have this behavior. But I still claim that customer impact is not severe enough to warrant it being a showstopper.
