- the README file with the obsolete text is not overseen (with the
long list of folders/files from src/main, CONTRIBUTING.md, to pom.xml the
notice in the README would get easily overlooked)
- if necessary it's still possible to look at the code (easy enough with one click) or even release from it (maven-release-plugin does not worry too much about branch names)
