There is now a Jetspeed-2 plugin in development.
You can create a new project template based.
You also start the Hypersonic server, and run the SQL scripts via 
jetspeed2 plugin goals.

However we have not addressed the issue of keep an existing project in 
sync with J2, keeping up with refactoring.
Perhaps this will become less of an issue when configuration is 
However the assembly scripts will always have differences, with 
overriding implementations etc
Maybe we should look into a Groovy class, with methods that can be 
overridden for example loadAggregator

I think this is possible. Perhaps the included file would be generated 
by the jetspeed2 plugin.

Another problem Im seeing is that we are not referencing the same 
versions of dependencies in components
For example, different components have different dependencies on jars 
like commons-lang
I think we need to ensure that we use the same jars in all components
