Well, we don't have either. Can I suggest for simplicity that we only have org.apache.cayenne
and nothing else? That's one less thing to think about then. I'm happy to go make the change
and run a few tests if you don't object.

But I think the appropriate way to stop certain modules from being deployed is this:


inserted into each module we want to hide. It should not matter where they are located in
the tree.

Maven typically downloads half the internet every time I run it. I doubt anyone will notice

If it just downloads the parent pom file that should be OK. Pretty small.

I would not expect that the artifacts are signed until AFTER they are built.  And shortly
we should have Windows and OSX clients for Hudson in the farm. Anyhow, this is a red herring...
I'd love to get the other stuff sorted.
