Commons site is working currently because is acting
as the storage for the shared CSS files.
If the site ever had to be recreated, it would not be enough to
redeploy commons-site and all the components.

It just seems wrong to have the source for some of the key CSS files
stored in an component that cannot easily be deployed (commons-build
uses Maven 1).

And even if one did deploy it, AFAICT the only useful output is the
style directory - the rest seems to be old documentation that would
then have to be overwritten by deploying commons-site.

The reason I need to do this now is that I need to create a new
version of commons-theme.css without the ApacheCon background logo.
This will be referenced in the new commons-skin via the site.css file.

I think it makes more sense to store the style files in commons-site,
so they will be uploaded whenever the commons-site is redeployed.
This will make changes easier going forward.
