Thanks for that. It all sounds sensible.

I must admit I like the idea of not building the distribution every time. I was just at a
loss at first, on how to build it because we don't use maven in our projects. Once I realised
that 'mvn' would do the trick I was OK. 

The question about what is needed to deploy, was because the target directory has lots of
stuff in it, I was expecting it to contain what is deployed and nothing else.

[Bozhong Lin] we consiously make this way since we do not want kit building to be done every
time when developers are doing regular build during development, since this would add longer
time to regular build. If one needs kit, one can switch to "distribution" and do the kit building.
What does other people think about this? do we need to include kit building in top level POM?

[Bozhong Lin] cxf-2.0-incubator-M1-SNAPSHOT-bin.jar is the only jar needs to be deployed.

[Bozhong Lin] cxf.jar is the facade jar that will find all jars needed by runtime, so one
only needs to set classpath to cxf.jar and it will take care of the rest.

[Bozhong Lin] will fix this.

[Bozhong Lin] that can be changed. What do other folks think about this? we basically have
three options for installed directory name: CXF, cxf, and celtixfire. If we adopt CXF or cxf
directory name, "CeltiXfire" name effectively dies.

[Bozhong Lin] fault feature is not completely done yet.
