Agreed. Though for basic stuff, like jar dependencies its ideal.

I guess rephrasing my original mail a bit. What do we think we need, in
addition to a Maven project descriptor (for those commons projects that use
Maven) to replicate the stuff available in the PROPOSAL.html and

e.g. we could even extend the project.xml, or have one or two extra
documents to add the extra stuff and autogenerate these HTML documents (as
Jeff said).

So far I like Jeff's proposal; of just having a (combined status-proposal)
proposal.xml in the xdocs that gets generated as part of the website.

Any other thoughts?
