You want to create a new git repo for fortress-master and remain the
(core|realm|web|rest) in their own git repos?

Or should all code be moved to a new git repo, with fortress-master as

In any case, when fortress-master is parent to (core|realm|web|rest) as
well as consumes those artifacts you run into a circular dependency.

I think it makes more sense to have (if possible all in one git repo):

* a parent POM (fortress-master) for dependency managnement and common
properties, child apache directory project pomof
* the existing (core|realm|web|rest), childs of fortress-master
* additional project/module(s) for docs, tools, tests, etc, that have
dependency to (core|realm|web|rest)
