I don't understand that. If we only had one group id, there wouldn't be any 'odd' group ids.
But I don't understand what a maven group id actually represents: it looks a bit like a namespace,
in which case we really should only have one namespace for the whole project.

There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the current folder structure. Only that the modules
inside the framework folder should reference a parent which is the framework pom itself. And
the names of each module should match exactly the folder names. If we did just that, would
anything break?

That plugin just seems too odd. And one day it would be nice to be able to release out of
Hudson. That is, to ensure the build environment is always reproducible, just pick an artifact
Hudson builds and name it with a release version.  That's what we've been doing at my company
and it helps a lot.
