Wes, you may not be a Maven maven, but you clearly know enough to know
that not everything you do with Mavan causes stuff to be checked in or
branches or labels to be created or whatever. ;-) Everything you do
with Maven in the Struts project uses the struts-master artifact.
We're trying to get a sanity check here, not a comprehensive test of
every option. Like I said before, surely people can build the site
locally and see if everyone shows up. That's a good enough sanity
check for me, and it's not going to check anything in or publish
