Both [lang] and [io] main sites are now updated via this new mechanism. 
Thus both [io] and [lang] now have no direct dependency on commons-build 
when building, whether from an svn checkout or from a released dist.

The full information is here:

A key aspect of what I tried to do was KISS. It basically uses the 
internet and web standards (like @import in CSS) to make the direct 
connections rather than relative paths. The same is true of the entities 
- http entities are better supported than relative ones.

The single central CSS should also prove very useful at ApacheCon time.

I hope that a mavenite may be able to tell us if this helps us use maven 
1.1 as I understood that the relative paths were a headache.
