Good point.  Right now http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/building.html
just contains the statement "Be sure to follow the instructions for
upgrading the plugins to the latest releases."  We could either doc
the full set there or check in the output of maven --info as a text
file in commons-build, making changes to that as necessary.  I would
recommend the second option, with a link on the "building" page.  I
will do that if no one beats me to it.

Would have failed (because of POM spec and lots of other
incompatibilities), as would the 1.1 beta.  I agree we need to make
version dependency clear.
