Hi Ralph,

these are good news! Some comments inline...

and learning the process.
I have not yet done a maven 2-based release either. However, I think 
documentation about the release process is permanently improving. See 
also the recent thread about using Nexus.

changes to it do document the new things I added. If you believe things are missing or unclear
let me know and I'll add them.  We've created a configuration editor that uses the Configuration
API to edit files stored in a WebDAV repository and it works well.  I believe the interfaces
are stable, at least in the 1.x branch. As we work on the experimental branch we may choose
to clean up how CC integrates with files overall.
Just had a look at the recent documentation, and it looks fine to me. I 
had asked about the stability of the interfaces because I had the 
impression that functionality is a bit mixed between ConfigurationUtils 
and FileSystem. Maybe in this area a clearer separation could be 
achieved, but I can also live with the current state.

and wasn't going to have time to work on it here so I've held back on that for now.
This would certainly be a good addition. But it could also be added to a 
later release.

But I am not sure whether it is already mature - maybe documentation could be improved, and
are the interfaces stable?
