that's because i've commented out the other modules in the root pom. I
fixed the webapp yesterday so that it runs again, i'll commit this now.
All you have to do from /webapp is war:inplace and point jetty to the
root of the webapp.

IMO just to start flattening the trunk, things will become easier to
manage and ppl can more easily participate in the m2 build process.
Getting the webapp to run automatic block deployment is not needed for
switching IMO, people can initially just copy the stuff manually.
