Subject Re: [general] Updating the Commons common web site
Date Fri, 26 Nov 2004 03:17:04 GMT
I'd verify that if you upload the tar.gz file to minotaur, tar -zxvf it 
and see if it expands properly. Theres no requirement in the site:deploy 
method that the file open in Winzip.

`maven site:deploy` will publish the tar to the site on minotaur 
appropriately, you do not have to upload it by hand. There are chances 
that with newer versions of Maven, that the site build is breaking.

the docs folder is old and I believe the build.xml file in the top level 
dir is there because Craig uses it to do nightly builds. I wouldn't 
attempt building the site using this file, you end up creating a mess.
