That's really awesome!!!
It works very very well now (tested on Linux and Mac OS X)...
I'm going to take a close at what you changed to get it working.
Thanks a lot.
I think I got it with the repository module. Can you please see if it
works for you as well?
If you see messages like
reference : template = META-INF/NOTICE.vm [line 14,column 1] :
$project.organization.name is not a valid reference.
it's because of https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIR-224 which is
fixed only in version 9-SNAPSHOT.
