Ah, this question is interesting.

I recently removed the dependency on the ../project.xml in Jelly  
because I think checking out a module should produce free-standing  
Before being a commons-committer, I always patched the project.xml so  
as to get rid of the project inheritance (which is only for a handful  
of ownership information for the website anyways).

How would it be with an http URL instead of relative URL ? Wouldn't  
that solve it?
Or why not have, in each commons-project directory a file like  
"jakarta-commons-common-project.xml" being copies this one ?
(the same should be true for properties).

Also, why do you need jakarta-commons/xdocs/

I think there's a limit to duplication prevention...
