It says here http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MDEP-11 that "mvn dependency:resolve -Dclassifer=sources does the same as mvn dependency:sources". This appears not to be the case since this.type is hard-coded to "java-source" and "jar" is the correct type for most cases (so the default is wrong too).
On the other hand, I can't see the sources mojo anywhere in trunk. Was it removed?
