I updated the project/bigbang/pom.xml to use the latest maven-remote- 
resources-plugin and bundle.  (I've also modified the apacheds and  
shared bigbang branches to construct what I think are OK legal files).

I also added a  couple more plugins that should be helpful to check  
the project "legal status":

- geronimo maven-tools-plugin.  This verifies that there is a LICENSE  
and NOTICE file in every output artifact such as jar, source jar, or  
javadoc jar.  I'm surprised this functionality isn't available  
anywhere else but AFAICT it isn't.
- maven-rat-plugin.  You run this with mvn rat:check.  I recommend  
doing a clean first.  It generates a report target/rat.txt that lists  
all the files and whether it thinks there might be something wrong  
with them as far as having a license header or suchlike.

I have a couple of suggestions:

1. go with the flow, don't fight city hall, etc etc and put the tags  
in xxx/tags like everyone else instead of xxx/releases.  This would  
let us eliminate the maven-release-plugin configuration everywhere  
except project/pom.xml.

2. Put a release profile in project/pom.xml that is similar to the  
one maven uses.  Parameterize it something like what I have done for  
geronimo so its fairly easy to stage stuff to your  
location for votes.  I've written this up for geronimo and it seems  
to work, including the stage plugin and staging the site.  http://
