Subject Re: [crypto] Instructions MUST mention running the tests

I also make a habit out of using "mvn verify" instead of "mvn package" (for the same reason,
do never document circumventing potential tests).

Subject: [crypto] Instructions MUST mention running the tests

Hi All:

When I see instructions in BUILDING.txt like:

Create binary distribution:

  $ mvn package -DskipTests

I am worried!

Why would you NOT want to run unit tests? Skipping tests from Maven is a
hack when you know what you are doing. Like when I just ran the tests, all
passed, and I changed something that is not Java source.

IMO, we need better build instructions.

I've added steps for RAT and Clirr, a must for any Maven component here.

Thank you,
