I've had another look at the parent pom, and it looks good. There is 
however one thing that needs to be changed and that is the path in the 
scm section. We need to append "/commons-parent/" to all three of the 
sub elements, because it has been moved in the repo. I'll take care of that.

If the release is made with Maven 2, the release will fail if there are 
any dependencies on SNAPSHOT versions.
