Can I ask why it is necessary for you to compile Turbine, Velocity and
Jetspeed as part of your own project when you can simply depend on the
relevant jar files (SNAPSHOTs if necessary) ?

It seems a very complicated way of going about things... unless you
REALLY depend on code that gets added to those projects on a day to day
basis, which seems quite unlikely.

Just curious.
