The -U switch worked.  Hmm, does that mean Maven treats snapshot plugins
different from snapshot dependencies?

I'll do that with <description> for now, but I'm on your side about using
<name> for the manifest.

Just as one example ... as the site generation was occurring, I saw it
create checkstyle reports for each module.  But I can't seem to find them
anywhere on the generated site. I would imagine we should also be able to
see all the other module-specific reports.

Everything is moving towards aggregation, but not all of it works yet.

We'll clearly want an aggregated site, but I'm wondering if focusing on the
assembly stuff might not be more urgent, so we can resurrect the nightly
builds.  Those have a timeout on the server, and I'm getting pinged from a
couple of users that it looks like the project is not progressing since
those are not being generated.
