Umm, it took three weeks to find someone capable of running site:deploy
for Geronimo.  I think I was the third person who tried (and failed).

I think it would be better to build from CVS, but for that to happen
all of the site publishing groups need to cooperate and produce a
single build script (either on minotaur or some staging machine) and
have the complete set of publishing tools installed on that machine
so that we can regenerate the site.

Because of grand failures on the part of some projects to do exactly
what you assume above.  Sometimes we get a security-related problem
crop up that requires an immediate posting of information on the
relevant site, and it is truly amazing how often that coincides with
people going on vacation or simply not reading their e-mail.
