One of our PRs (http://albany.eng.hst.ams2.redhat.com/job/btny-pulls-narayana-catelyn/1089) ran on windows and failed due to a version issue with the maven-assembly-plugin. The blacktie/blacktie/pom.xml overrides the version set in the parent:
<!-- this is required for EL5 as the newer versions of the assembly plugin do not allow us to update the zip -->
We should either retest without the version override or try to find another solution if the latest version of the plugin still has the same issue (Zheng Feng are you aware of any alternative?).
