Date Thu, 18 Sep 2003 20:36:57 GMT has some decent documentation, such as a project 
descriptor reference, and a user's guide.  Do you have a question that 
isn't answered there?

a better destination for your question.

Maven can be complicated at first, but it is a lot harder for me to 
"explain the project layout" than it is to answer a more specific question.
