There is already a branch for v0.7rc2 in svn that builds of maven2. 
Only issue that is pending is that a dependency on Apache juddi exists 
that does not have its artifacts in m2.  So the user needs to create a 
juddi in local repository (I have created a jira request in Apache juddi 
on this).

create a tag for your cvs/svn repo with a 
label of 0.7-rc2?

This is very important for packaging on gentoo as it is a source based distro.  
In fact the whole of gentoo is based around users being able to customise 
compile options.

I understand if you are not prepared to package the source yet (hopefully I 
will be able to convince you of the benefits by 1.0) but having the tag 
within your repo would allow me to export this specific version now and at 
any point in the future.

These are some links that the gentoo java community has produce, it contains 
some reasons why we build java from source and more importantly tips on how 
to be a good upstream.

I would also like to point out that gentoo has a policy of sending any patches 
upstream for your consideration.   Hopefully over the coming months Gentoo 
can get packages such as scout into the official tree.
