I don't have a strong opinion yet on where this should go, but I'd  
like to point out that any plugin you build with the car-maven- 
plugin, such as the roller or apacheds plugins, will have its  
metadata added to your local maven repo's geronimo-plugins.xml  
catalog.  Similarly, no matter where the plugin is in svn, you can  
add it to a maven-built assembly by editing the assemblies pom.
