A non-SNAPSHOT version should be built exactly once if at all
possible.  Once it's in a repository, for all intents and purposes it
*is* released and should not be changed. [1]  Next time around let's
just evaluate the -SNAPSHOT version until it's ready to tag and

Do we need both?  I think .zip is sufficient.

I'll look at it tomorrow afternoon, but I suspect renaming the files
will be the easiest solution for 1.0.3.

The latest version of the assembly plugin has an option for this.  It
would require changing the assembly descriptors to the new format, and
I haven't been able to get it to do what I want.

Another issue: The portlet-api jar is included in WEB-INF/lib of
shale-blank.  I didn't check the others.  Also, LICENSE and NOTICE are
in WEB-INF/classes.  META-INF is probably more appropriate, as with
the jars.

had changed in svn since the original.)
