Back again after the 3 days ASF infrastructure outage :-)

As you might saw, I've added a script to cocoon/trunk. As
Continuum supports "Shell Projects" this seems to me to be the best alternative 
as you only have to create a project, point to the shell script, link it with 
the scheduler and add a mail notifier.

Hence the maintainance of this setup should be fairly simple. I also adapted the 
settings.xml of the user "maven" at the zone. It contains the Daisy credentials 
and some properties now.

The advantage of this solution is that we get the notification mechanism for 
free. The downside _could_ be that Continuum doesn't rebuild the docs if there 
hasn't been a change in SVN when a project is triggered by the scheduler. But 
I'm not sure about this.

Could you configure the DOC_GENERATION scheduler so that it runs every 4 hours? 
(I'm not an expert for cron expressions.)

And I have a question: How can I override a configuration parameter from the 
command line? The problem is that "", the 
repository URL, can't be resolved from within the zone. As a temporary 
workaround I changed the repository URL in our root pom to http://localhost:9263 
but this obviously only works from within the zone.

I tried it with "mvn site -DrepoUrl=http://localhost:9263" but this way the 
value doesn't get set. In the mojo, the repo URL is configured like that:

      * The Daisy repo server url.
      * @parameter expression="${repoUrl}"
      * @required
     protected String repoUrl;

Any ideas? Am I doing something wrong, or is it a bug?
