Orphaning eclipse-xtext and dependencies

eclipse-xtext and its dependencies eclipse-xpand and eclipse-emf-mwe have
just been orphaned. Eclipse SIG has no use of these packages anymore
(despite them being really active upstream), the build system is quite
complicated and they haven't been properly kept upto date lately.

Orphaning not-yet-commons-ssl

I've just orphaned not-yet-commons-ssl [1]. It is a dependency of
eclipse-fedorapackager but I'm not sure how useful this dependency still is
I haven't used it lately. The library has a dependency on
jakarta-commons-httpclient which has been EOLed in 2011 [2] .

Orphaning eclipse-birt

I don't have the time nor to will to deal with it anymore.
Master is orphan now, feel free to pick it up. If noone does it in a week I'll deprecate the package.

Heads-up: Maven builds might be failing for some period

Hi everyone,

Fedora is transitioning to using Maven 3 by default. Up until now it was
working because a lot of things were bringing maven2 into the build system.
Maven2 was part of Fedora for more ~5 years - long enough time to get a lot of
crap accumulated. We are slowly fixing issues as they arrive but there will
surely be a lot of pain until we get Maven 3.x properly working without maven2
being installed.
