Okay, fair enough... by why are you calling it "samples-parent"?   
Usually -parent modules are themselves top-level projects with no  
children, which are used to hold common pom configuration.

I'd recommend simply calling the module "samples" instead.

And we may even want to just make a samples module in the server  
tree, since it looks like you are branching this project when the  
server is branched.  It may be better to add this module to the  
server project and simply make it build optionally.
