Sounds good.  I will build with Sun jdk-1.4.2_08 and set 

However, I am running into yet another problem, I would really 
appreciate if another committer could try it (say, on logkit)and tell me 
if it is my machine/env. or something else.

I am on Win-XP (latest updates/SPs), and Cygwin. I am able to run the 
Maven (1.0.2) excalibur:release goal just fine, when using  jdk-1.3.  
Using, JDK-1.4, or  1.5,  makes  the build hang when it gets to one of 
the <ant:exec> tags, starting with when it invokes "gpg", but also with 
the "ssh" and "svn" invocations.  I have tried maven-1.1-beta, same 
behavior.  I have tried making the command "gpg.exe", I have tried the 
spawn="true" attribute of <ant:exec>,  I have tried wrapping the 
executables in a batch file, I have tried using a windows command shell, 
rather than Cygwin/Bash shell. I have tried pretty much everything. 
Nothing seems to work.

In a fit of rage, I spent all day yesterday installing Fedora Core 4 on 
a spare disk....I am done with it.  I am playing with the Eclipse 
install and setting up the Java env. now, so will be able to try there 
soon.  In the meantime, someone please try on Win-XP and let me know.
