Sure thing!

Do all artifact ids stay the same?

*shrug*. Never really was :)

Honestly, I haven't reviewed the m2 bits in a looong time. I know it
looked good when initially committed. Were there big changes from the
maven 1 structure?

Of course, lazy consensus doesn't apply to releases. They need a PMC vote.
If you create some candidate releases and put them up somewhere I'll be happy
to review and vote, but we're all busy so count on some time :)

My main beef with maven 2 (corporate stuff) is its so hard to have
"repeatable" builds, eg making sure I can take some source code a year
from now and result in a build with exactly the same binaries, so I'd
love to see you be very precise in keeping logs, perhaps even going so
far as cleaning out ~/.m2, creating the builds, then zipping ~/.m2 and
pushing it in SVN somewhere close to the release tag, then doing later
release candidates with -offline. Or something; haven't fully figured it
out yet. Does cocoon have a process?
