There are two things that need to be resolved to make this happen, 
AFAIK.  First, we need to settle the issue of what goes in CVS.  If "all 
generated HTML" is the answer, we need to get all of the maven-generated 
HTML committed (many megs of redundant content, many redundant commit 
messages IMHO).  Second, we need to agree on a common nav (as stated on 
the Wiki page).  My vote would be to use commons/incl_nav uniformly. 
Several of the existing maven sites (both linked and unlinked) don't 
include this.  I also agree with the Wiki proposal for the "standard" 
pages (FAQ, examples, etc).

I deployed the lang maven site a couple of weeks ago and have been 
waiting to see where the CVS debate ended up (and some cleanup of the 
main site, so I could safely regenerate and commit all of the nav 
changes) before linking it (with some fixes).

I am willing to help with this, starting with [lang] and [collections], 
first getting the basic sites out and then adding the missing pages. I 
am also willing to help document whatever site generation / cvs update 
process we agree on.

Can we agree to omit the maven-generated HTML from cvs and use 
commons/incl_nav for the standard nav?
