I'm trying to generate a JAR from the plantuml source code (, by running mvn package; however, I'm getting the following error about a missing package:

plantuml/src/gen/lib/label/[56,21] error: package gen.annotation does not exist

any hints about what steps did I miss?

This was caused because I was using the github snapshot of the code, which is apparently missing some packages/files. When I used a snapshot from sourceforge (and switched to java-older-than-java-11), the problem went away.
