I've added a README with an overview of the different distros and
pointers to getting started docco, mailing lists, JIRA etc:

http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/cxf/dosgi/trunk/distribution/multi-bundle/src/main/release/README?view=markup

I've also addressed your other concerns in these two commits:

http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=772157&view=rev
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=771670&view=rev

So I think we should be good to go with a second cut at this release.

Cheers,
Eoghan
