The problem is that there are 40+ release artifacts now and doing it this way is 
very inconvenient.Maybe I should to write a Maven report which creates only the 
menu entry and an apidocs directory. I could put a script into this directory 
which downloads the zipped javadocs archive from the central Maven repository 
and unzip it then.

Could somebody help me with an additional script which recursivly scans for the 
download scripts, sets the "x" attribute on the file and executes it then?
