It's done struts-taglib.  I think there are tlds in both tiles and el that
still need work.

Maven is already generating both Taglibdoc and Taglib Reference pages, both
of which you can see on the test site.  (Taglibdoc is in the list of
reports, Taglib Reference is linked at the top of the left-hand menu.)

To create it locally, from /struts/current/taglib, execute 'maven site' to
build just the taglib website.  (Or 'maven multiproject:site' from
/struts/current/build if you want the whole thing.)  And make sure you have
the latest version of the taglib plugin, the author made some changes
recently and released a new version.

The tlds themselves live in taglib/src/tld.

Sounds interesting!

Note that the Javadoc will move when the new site is published... rather
than being under it's split up by sub-project.
There's a page with links to each set to make it a little easier:
(Otherwise you have to go hunting under Project Documentation->Project
Reports->Javadocs for each sub-project.)

I think I used a combination of the existing xsl that used to produce the
tld from xml files (look in taglib/doc/stylesheets) and the Maven taglib
plugin to convert from JSP 1.1 to 1.2 tlds.  Then a bunch of
search-and-replace to add CDATA around the markup.  If you have time to fix
the remaining tlds, that would be great!
