Subject Re: Latest status on the hanging Jenkins slaves/builds

The better idea is to notify PMCs (pmcs@apache.org?) and send
instructions how to convert Maven project into free-style project IMO.
I can do it for Apache Struts project (6-8 builds) and probably others
will likely do it for their projects - we want to have stable builds

Also blog post how to configure jobs in the future will be useful and
how we can share artifacts without directly linking to Jenkins
