I agree it's a pain, IMO mainly because the Maven documentation is lacking.
Large areas of built-in processing are not documented at all - for
example the site.xml <custom> tag is only mentioned in passing.
And there is broken functionality that is not fixed, just worked round
(e.g. DOXIA-150)

However, I think I've got the custom template working better now.

I've changed it to use the <custom> tag in site.xml, so we can just add:

      <div class="xleft">Apache HttpComponents, Commons HttpClient,
Apache, the Apache feather logo, and the Apache HttpComponents project
logo are trademarks of The Apache Software Foundation.</div>
      <div class="xleft">All other marks mentioned may be trademarks
or registered trademarks of their respective owners.</div>

and have the HTML added to the footer just before the copyright.

Also, it seems that using a custom skin does not override the custom
CSS and images, so the skin can be generic.

I'll be uploading a new version soon.
