I think it's fairly clear that we won't get even alpha quality.  There  
are just so many things broken in it right now, but if that's okay...   
We should probably skip binary packages so that people realize that  
this is not something you should deploy.

I think we've been pretty much using these rules already to release  
2.8.x :-), so this shouldn't be a big issue.

I added the build scripts that are currently used to build-and-release  
JSPWiki 2.8 to the /scripts/ directory of the JSPWiki repository (on  
the same level as /trunk and /branches), for public interest (and for  
the eventuality that someone will probably want to start spinning  
releases). The build_jspwiki_nightly script already works on, and I'm running preliminary nightlies at

I hope to move my current nightly builds from to (assuming I'm not doing a faux pas).
