I'm only a user of the JCIFS project but I just wanted to second this

I've been planning to upload 1.3.17 as a 3rd party artefact following
the instructions below.

But if you can get approval for creating a official artefact hosting
of the project this is obviously a much better approach.

Just my $0.02
