I had a look at this and was puzzled for a while. Looking at the 
commons-logging site there is a link to
under "Jakarta Community" in the menu. But when I tried building it with 
Maven I didn't get the menu item.

It turns out that skitching removed that menu item from commons-build at 
2005-05-23 (revision #172281). The commit message was
   "Remove link to jakarta repository info in jakarta community navbar
    section. This information is too generic for commons users; the links
    available from the commons site are more useful/targetted."

Should we put it back again?

As for actually checking stuff out of the source repository I think the 
Apache page is more informative. There is a link to that page from the 
Jakarta page ( So perhaps 
one link is enough?
