Sourceforge CVS woes.

      * Our biggest problem right now is the lack of support for and by Maven 2 which needs
to get addressed if we don't want to see more Java projects become unbuildable. 
+     * [ SourceForge] CVS has been having problems since late March, when anonymous
CVS dropped out of sync with the private repositories. In mid-may the site moved from having
one CVS server for everything, to having a separate hostname for every project's repository.
For Gump, this means that every sourceforge-hosted project needs to have their own repository
file and the existing builds need to be completely purged. Currently only a few projects have
been migrated due to their ubiquitousness (JUnit) or due to the effort of the project members
themselves. Obviously, only project members who are also apache committers can do this unaidedely,
which pushes more work onto the gump team. 
+ Until a full migration takes place, sourceforge-hosted projects will be built using a source
snapshot of early May. This is going to lead to problems the longer the migration is put off.
      * still all Apache committers have access to metadata in svn.
