Looks good.  We can direct them to http://people.apache.org/dist/james for the beta release.
 And we should plan to reorganize for the v2.3 release so that we have james/server/{source,
binaries}, making room for jspf/ to be a peer of server/.

Agreed on all counts.  Neither one of us likes the current situation, but agree that doing
this is better than not.

We've got to do something.  We want a main site, plus project specific content, and release
specific content within project specific content.  We also want to change what Maven is generating.
 Almost all of its default reports should be turned off.  Of the Project Documentation set
perhaps keep:

  Dependencies, Issue Tracking, Mailing Lists, License

The Source Repository report is OK to show the URL, but all of the content should be directed
to http://www.apache.org/dev/#svn.  We don't want to maintain general SVN instructions.

The only Project Report we should keep is the JavaDocs, and that needs to be per-release level.
 The "Who we are"/Project Team is JAMES, not component specific.

And I most definitely do not want a "Built by Maven" logo on the page.

I'd be willing to see what such an overall site would look like, but want to see it before
we decide to keep it.

Regardless of whether we use the same or different tools to build the site parts, we can merge
them via svn (e.g., james/ would come from site/, james/server would come from server/, jspf/
would come from jspf/, etc.).  I'd prefer a common look, regardless of which approach we take.

On the jSPF site, cvs.apache.org should be people.apache.org.
