The problem is generic... a similar problem would occur if you would 
download jelly without a maven build (much much fatter): you would need 
to follow instructions on how to download the dependencies that are not 

Where you place it seems obvious from maven approach, or doesn'it ?
Just have a look at ~/.maven/repository/

I think we all know jelly-packaging is currently in a bad state.
No-one had the time to actually make it all work clean. Possibly 
flagging appropriately the taglibs that have bad dependencies.
Maybe a distribution of jelly where only taglibs without downloadable 
dependencies are could be made ? There's a little bit of work left into 

To help into running your own jelly, I've mailed to this list an 
extension of the maven.xml of jelly to allow classpath resolution. 
Check the archives under the subject "jellypack".
Again, it's unfinished.
