The end goal is not to have the JARs in CVS, but to use Maven, or grab
them from ibiblio.org.  Adding them to CVS is a "half-measure" to help a
few people along the way to this goal.  

The flaw in the current system is the reliance on a
"build.properties.sample", which one needs to copy and customize to
build docs.  jakarta-commons follows a model similar to jakarta-taglibs
and jakarta-struts.  Someone checks in a sample properties file, with
references to arbitrary locations of dependencies.   

I'm all for moving to another system, but I read Henri's email as an
accurate take on the situation from one of the few people who needs to
generate the site and push it to daedalus.
