IIRC, this was how the repository was created by the
infrastructure when I created the wadl project. I then added the spec
directory as a peer of www and source. The www directory seems to have
some special significance to, i don't think there's any way
to have it use a different directory for the web content.

Could we move the root pom to trunk and update the documentation to
have people check out the complete tree rather than just the source ?
