Sorry, I've been working with uPortal, and managed to blend Jetspeed and uPortal in my head.
What I meant is that if you unpack the JAR (sorry, my first instinct with any archive is to
unpack it), the immediately visible documentation is for a completely different project.

No, this is mostly me not reading the documentation on the website, and so trying to unpack
rather than run the installer, or I would have got into this confusion. I figured out later
on what I'd done wrong, should have sent an update e-mail, apologies. Still, it would be good
if the documentation in the top directory of the JAR was for Jetspeed, and any other project's
documentation was kept elsewhere. Does that make more sense?
