they are set up but it's likely that they don't run through ATM because 
of our 1.5 problem. I've just commented the jms-samples module that has

The bash script that controls the nightly build has an error handling 
section which _should_ send a message in the case of a failure. 
Unfortunately it doesn't work correctly.

Can some bash guru have a look at it? (find the script by looking at the 
crontab of the 'maven' user on our zone)

I usually do but I've missed that. Instead we should add a ApacheCon 
US08 banner.

Thanks for taking care Felix!
