Because there have been no releases of 1.3.x components, right now 
the easiest way to build Struts from SVN source is to change to 
thecurrent/build directory and execute "maven build-all"  This will 
build all of the current Struts components and install them to your 
local Maven repository as "struts-xxx-1.3.0-dev.jar"

Once you've done that, you could then build individual components 
without repeating the process, as long as they don't depend on 
changes in other components.

Once we've cut releases, I assume we'll mostly try to shift the 
dependencies to released versions instead of the "dev" versions, and 
then in most cases you won't have to do the build-all.  It seems 
inevitable, though that we will occasionally have interdependencies 
based on unreleased code -- we'll either have to revert to what we're 
doing now (selectively) or perhaps consider using Maven's SNAPSHOT 

Hope this helps
