I made a couple of changes since some of what was in resources pom was
duplicating what we already have in the commons-parent pom. The
compiler "properties" you set to 1.5 are used in the parent to
configure the compiler plugin. Also we tie the site and assembly
plugins to the "package" phase in the parent so you can run "mvn -Prc
package" already and it will do the assembly and site stuff.
