The whole apache java software experience was really painful.  It was
definitely something that needs a dedicated admin who has time to learn
from the undocumentation and the quirks rather than an casual user like me.

When the _released_ jar has a (v2) logging configuration file is
incompatible with the (v3) logging library used and certain versions
of that library throw unhelpful exceptions it is a pain.  Then when you then
checkout the code for the released project and find it has compile problems
which should have stopped the released jar being built let alone released in
the first place you start to feel there is a chasm between you and the project.

Have fun,
