You mean build them I presume.

You'll need to check out a different tag or branch.  A branch will most 
likely produce a SNAPSHOT whereas a tag will be for a non-SNAPSHOT'd 
version.  This should usually be the case but tags can be taken of a 
SNAPSHOT in time.  Just take a look in the project.xml to figure out 
what's going to be built.

success.  Please point me in the right direction.
First off most of the tagged releases should be available as jars from 
the maven repo or from Apache mirrors in a distro.  So no need to build 
this stuff unless you want to fork it and customize it for some reason 
off a release.

Usually the latest SNAPSHOT is available on  However if its not and you want the 
bleeding edge just check out the branch or the trunk.  Look at the 
project.xml's currentVersion tag to determine what the version for that 

The leading edge for MINA is 0.9 and its in the trunk. 

Good luck,
