It's in sandbox-trunks for now

It shouldn't be necessary. If the parent is finalised and released as an 
independant artifact first, it will be downloaded from the repository 
like any dependency.

It's extremely useful for reducing duplication and making changes (such 
as repository location) easier, and also allows the same for any 
generated sites, so I'd say yes :)

settings.xml is the equivalent of ~/ It should only 
need additions if you are a deployer or want to add additional 
repositories yourself.

The assembly plugin is the equivalent of dist (but is a lot more 
flexible). There is a default descriptor for building source and binary 
tarballs/zips, but you can also create your own, describing the layout 
of the resulting archive.
