Hi Kristian,

Thanks for pointing this out. I have corrected the release-building 
targets to include maven2 but not the original maven directory which you 
are going to deprecate.

Thanks to you and Knut for drawing my attention to DERBY-3857. I also 
corrected the release building targets to pull in the ide subtree.

I notice that DERBY-3857 was open for a long time even though the fix 
was trivial. I don't think that the category "build tools" is specific 
enough to get the attention of our release managers. Maybe we need to 
flag these issues with a keyword to distinguish release-generation 
issues from ordinary defects in our cumbersome build.

I don't feel that these defects warrant a re-spin by themselves. 
However, I merged the release-building changes to the 10.6 branch in 
case we need another candidate.
