Description evernat 2007-06-07 14:43:17 UTC
Name in META-INF/manifest.mf in all poi jars seems invalid.

manifest.mf files are all saying :
Name: common
Specification-Title: Jakarta POI
Specification-Version: 3.0-rc4-20070503
Specification-Vendor: Apache
Implementation-Title: Jakarta POI
Implementation-Version: 3.0-rc4-20070503
Implementation-Vendor: Apache

I think it should be Name : org/apache/poi/
'common' does not mean anything for poi jars.

I don't think we need the section entry at all, and it looks like we only had it
because someone cut and pasted it from the ant documentation as a template.

I have remove the section entry, so all of the metadata is now in the main
section, so applies to the whole of the jar (assuming I've read the jar spec

Based on javamail or ojdbc14, it seems ok to me.
