This reply is tremendously out of date (sorry ... I've been travelling 
and heads-down for the last couple of months, and am only just getting 
back to Apache stuff) ... but here's the skinny on commons nightly builds.

- They run on my home desktop nightly, and get uploaded.
  (I would heartily support a migration of this to some Apache
  sponsored hardware somewhere, especially if others would
  then be involved in maintaining the build scripts).

- My current build scripts require that "ant clean dist" (using a
  relatively recent Ant) works correctly, and builds a "dist"
  directory whose contents are what should be in a binary

- In turn, that means a project must either use Ant as its primary
  build tool, or use Maven to regenerate a build.xml that works
  correctly whenever an incompatible change is made.

As of this morning when I tried, running "ant dist" on the build.xml for 
configuration still fails trying to find class 
"" -- implying that perhaps 
your project.xml file is pointing at an incorrect version of Commons 
Collections (although I would have thought that would make your Maven 
based builds fail as well.

Further, I could not even use "maven ant" myself to regenerate a 
build.xml file (simply to see if that was the only cause of the 
problem).  I get a bunch of errors of the general form:

  Invalid Redirect URI from: 

The bottom line is that I'd be happy to add "configuration" to the set 
of nightly commons builds, but I need a build.xml file that works to 
make that happen.
