No, that's what I just clarified.
This is a non-issue and Viji as already provided a workaround with if/then etc.

maven2 is neithe rin base OS not in EPEL. So we simply don't have it
in our depednent repo.

If no objection, we will add JPP as a dep for ELGIS-Plus and then we
will be able to happily leverage all what is done over there.
GDAL is a special case because we want it to stay in ELGIS (non-Plus)
