I've seen it, thanks - and you'll be getting your first nag mail
rather soon.

So there is quite a bit to do, commons-daemon is not "Gumpified" so
far, what is/where do I find commons-launcher and so on.

It would probably be easier the other way around (generate the
download target from the dependency list in a descriptor of some

Sam once wrote this mail to hint what would be the minimum for him:

The minimum IMHO should be to run the (or .bat if you are
unfortunate 8-) script with your modified profile if you want the new
project to be included with Jakarta's main Gump.  In the Tomcat 5 case
you would have gotten something like "Dropping project
jakarta-tomcat-5 as it depends on jakarta-site-5 which doesn't exist"
or similar.

Well, yes.  But it's not Gump, it is the stuff it builds that needs
everything Sun has ever released 8-)

Try to strip down your personal profile to just those projects that
Tomcat-5 directly or indirectly depends upon (more than enough, I
guess) and stick to this.  Running a complete Gump build is going to
take a loooong time.

Most of them would require click-through licenses, some of them even
require you to register with Sun.
