Hi Emmanuel,

I just wanted to give a bit more details about the problems I was having with maven.  It didn't
seem too serious, and maybe it's normal, but it was just a bit worrisome due to my naivete
with maven ;-)

Haha, ok.  I did use maven 2.0.4.  The errors I got were along the lines of "I couldn't download
that from that location" or "IO error while downloading that."  Just reissuing 'mvn install'
over and over seemed to get me a build, so I'm happy until I get to testing out the build

Great, thanks!

Ah, ok, I do use cygwin, but I didn't use it for this first build.  I'll give that a shot.

Yep, just started using the svn 'trunks' version ;-)  Maybe I'll change to the other one you
mention if that's going to be the next 'stable' release.  Thanks for the help, it's much appreciated!
