Subject Maven apt format better? (Fwd: New website is published!)

I've just come across it and wonder how much the apt format would help

such as HTML, and the following document contains some examples of

The new website is up (with many broken links and omissions.)
Continuum should be publishing on the hour but sometimes it decides
not to build in which case you can always force a build.  Contact me
offlist for the username and password to manage the continuum server
(the link to the server itself will be on the website for all to see.)

Now let's get to work adding some content!  No more new xdocs please.
Use the apt format which is much easier to read.  Each apt dir has a
format.apt file with some guidelines on how the format works.  Also
you can use a few of the new apt files as a guideline.
