Hmm....  Based on comments on this thread, looks like I may not be
in the minority on this.

I am willing to do the following:

0) Either a) create an Ant deployment script similar to what Tomcat
uses [1] or b) create a generic bash script that can be run from
p.a.o to deploy from ~rm/foo-x.y.x-RCw
1) Update the web site docs so we have full and working documentation

Either of the options in 0) require that we move back to publishing
from ibiblio-rsync from p.a.o (and we have to be able to get this
reverted - not sure this is even possible at this point, but we
could ask).  If we decide to start publishing snapshots, we can use
the same approach for these.
