Another thing that I have suggested before is .... create an repo like 
jakarta-site which has all the latest uptodate jars. Make sure that you are 
going to retain backwards compatability and then publish it's existence.

Then others can rely on this single repo to build their stuff rather than 
every joe checking in binaries to their own CVS. It was one of the key 
features that got me to dump all our cocoon based docs and move to anakia.
