This also needs specific info on what versions of Maven and it's plugins 
are needed to build the site. I browsed through Building Components [1] 
which is quite good, but it lacks the version details. We should also 
update the section describing the POM elements to use groupId/artifactId 
instead of just id. Would you like me to write a patch for this?
