I think that the copy is actually the problem. Each time the jars are
copied, they have a new date/time stamp. Signing them as they are copied
does not make the problem worse. It merely modifies them a bit more.
I could be wrong.
Perhaps the solution is to copy local jars and sign them to a location
that is ignored by clean. For example: project/target/jars. And add a
"clobber" target to clean it and everything else via clobber.extra (to
The target/ant/jars would only contain the project jar(s).
