Subject RE: Goal order

Yes, there is an easier way to work with Maven.  But I don't have the
luxury  (see thread
rg&msgNo=13520).  Although some would argue that it's not a luxury, and
I'd have to agree.

So, if I am going to try to build this from the pom, without having all
dependencies available in the repository, I need to get my cvs checkout
of at least the web-inf/lib to run prior to the dependencies goal.
