      Description

      The current maven distribution is almost unusable without a net connection. There is not even a readme!

      This needs to change before the final release, if only so new users will know to set up a MAVEN_HOME, and run "maven -help" and "maven -g" to get help on what the system can do.

      Distributing the getting started guide is essential, and perhaps the plugin documentation.

        I personally think that the documents should be packaged, but not inside the distribution

        perhaps...

        maven-1.0-final.zip (code + docs)
        maven-1.0-final-src.zip (src + docs)
        maven-1.0-final-bin.zip (code)

        rinse and repeat for tar.gz (or tar.bz2)

        I think we should include the pdf inside a docs/ directory of the binary distribution. WDYT?
