Well, to do that I'd have to know what the earlier problems were that you
say were solved and how the current practice solves them.

Without that info, I would just say that de-coupling the downloading of
some JBoss code from the building of Jaybird is all that is required. I
would create a separate Ant target for doing this and NOT include it in the
normal Jaybrd build. Re-downloading should only be done during QA to insure
the latest Jaybird works with the latest JBoss.

My goal would be to have a system which allows a Java developer to download
a collection of source from a Jaybird site and build it without requiring a
CVS installation or anything else.

So, what is it I'm missing?
