Hi All -
We've raised pull request 1119 [1] which implements the restructuring of
the incubator-brooklyn project in preparation for the split into multiple

You can checkout the PR locally and build as normal,

## Snippet from the PR [1]
This pull applies the pre-repository-split restructuring script from rdowner/brooklyn-repo-split#5 [2], and
updates maven/tests accordingly.

Once applied the project will be structured in preparation for the split
into multiple git repositories (brooklyn-server, brooklyn-ui,
brooklyn-library, brooklyn-dist, brooklyn).

A verbose commit history is maintained for reference with each commit
prefixed by the impacted submodule, ie [SERVER], [LIBRARY] etc. (Note the
work-in-progress repo was originally located here [3].)

The project can be built as normal, with a brooklyn pom in the root of the

You may also build each submodule in turn, brooklyn-ui, brooklyn-server,
brooklyn-library and finally brooklyn-dist. The brooklyn subdirectory will
eventually become the split repo base project,.

Feedback is greatly welcomed.
