There was a problem doing a build.  That problem should have been reported
to maven sooner, but has been addressed by now.

However, being able to do a build and being able to do recovery must be two
separate issues in my mind.  Even if we have a build server, it has to
maintain at least one successful build, as well as the build it is trying to
generate.  We cannot hold recovery hostage to something breaking in the
build process.  At any given time we need to have:

 minotaur:/www
 minos:/www
 minos:/staging

Or something to that effect.  Staging/ would not get moved to www/ unless it
is successful, which allows minotaur to be recovered from minos*.

* minos being the hypothetical build server.  King Minos commissioned
daedalus to build the minotaur's labyrinth.
