Ant or JavaCC, for example.

I don't understand that either.  They probably sit in the moderation

Should do so shortly.

dom4j failed because tests failed and so we didn't try to build any
parts of jelly for a few days.  I changed dom4j's descriptor and the
first public run that had picked it up has just finished a few minutes
ago.  You can already see the builds I mean by looking into the build
log of "public".

No, the tests [ERROR] out, and I think it is because ouf a
ClaasNotFoundException for org.jaxen.JaxenException.  It was the last
time when I checked.

If it is not listed as a dependency, the junit plugin won't add it to
the classpath running the tests.

OK, swing fails since the tests don't pick up the java.awt.headless

Some others fail because of not finding beanutils or BSF

Jetty also has different problems[2] (ports being in use and missing
commons-codec now needed by commons-httpclient).
