+1 for achieving consistency as a first step. If we want to use the Maven
multi-project plug-in, having everything Mavenised first will (probably)
make that easier. (I say "probably" because I've never played with the
multi-project stuff myself.)

Regarding publishing the sites, I'm not all that worried about that. There
is already a system in place to automatically update the main Jakarta site
periodically (i.e. every few hours), and I suspect it wouldn't be hard to
piggy back on that. Of course, that will be easier when we have one
Commons site to update, rather than one per component, but hey, baby steps
first. ;-)

When I find a few minutes, I'll try to put up a page on the wiki to help
us organise this effort, with a list of tasks that need to happen to get
us where we want to be. (Unless, of course, someone beats me to it! ;)
