  +=======================================================================
  +summary:   an effort to create, design, develop and maintain a common
  +           framework and set of components for applications written
  +           using the java language.
  +publisher: Apache Software Foundation
  +website:   http://avalon.apache.org/
  +license:   Please see the LICENSE.txt file
  +=======================================================================
  +
  +This is the main cvs module for the Apache Avalon project. It is
  +organised into several subdirectories containing several subprojects.
  +See the documentation and other resources inside those subdirectories
  +for more information.
  +
  +
  +More documentation?
  +===================
  +Most of our documentation is stored in CVS only in xml format. The HTML-
  +formatted pages that are generated from those xml files are available at
  +our website at
  +
  +    http://avalon.apache.org/
  +
  +
  +Building from source?
  +=====================
  +The avalon buildfiles use a common buildsystem which utilizes maven and
  +forrest. You will need to download and install maven, the
  +maven-forrest-plugin, and the avalon-buildsystem module. After doing so,
  +change into the buildsystem directory and type `maven avalon:info` to
  +get yourself started.
  +
  +
  +Where did the Avalon-Framework subproject go?
  +=============================================
  +Don't worry, it didn't move very far. The framework sources have been
  +relocated to the framework subdirectory.
