Subject Re: Commons, Maven, Site, Release

Thanks for the quick response Brett. I have it all working now, thanks 
to your changes.

To move this forward I have created a wiki page where anyone interested 
can add their comments and experiences. For starters it includes:
- instructions for getting started
- my experiences so far
- basic steps to convert a component from Maven 1 to Maven 2

If there are things that we feel needs to be changed in Maven we can add 
references to the corresponding Jira issues.

The wiki page is here:

Learning by doing often works well for me, so I have converted 
commons-id to Maven 2. At least the site generation is working properly. 
But the unit tests are failing for me. Think I saw something about that 
in another thread. Anyway, is there any interest in the files that I 
have made for commons-id?
