You're on the right track. Basically, in this case,

    all common files

After setting up properties files, adjust overall build command in
build.xml in taglibs/ (depends="prepare,dist.documentation,input").
Run ant in taglibs/

Ping again if you have more questions. Not sure how active the input
taglib is, but thanks in advance for any patches.
