 we've only really had one person on our group to get turbine to build, and then we just took
that exact maven folder and maven repository to others machines to build.  could someone tell
me the specific environment (maven version, etc) that works nicely with turbine? do other
experience maven difficulties building turbine?

 With turbine 2.3, we could only get the doPerform method of that class to run.  someone in
our group mentioned that this was fixed after the 2.3 release of turbine and that if we could
get the latest from the 2.3 branch, we'd have the fix.  has anyone else noticed this behavior
with the released turbine 2.3?  and how active is the maintenance on 2.3?  do most people
run from the lastest cvs version of the turbine they're using?  we don't have good access
to an external cvs server (turbine's), and the only thing i see for the nightlies are 2.3.1-dev
versions, or patches for turbine 2.3 which seem to predate the 2.3 release.
Maven 1.0 was released fairly recently - this is the best version to use.

I would recommend checking out the TORQUE_3_1_BRANCH of torque and 
rebuilding and installing the maven plugin - in fact this is the only 
way of getting the plugin at present.  There are instructions at: 

As you are using intake I would recommend that you also check out the 
TURBINE_2_3_BRANCH of turbine as there are a number of intake related 
bug fixes that will make life easier for you.

I think others have already highlighted the solution to your action problem.

The Source Repository page on the turbine page mentions CVSGrab which 
can be used to checkout the source from behind a corporate firewall (I 
have never tried this).
