The only .jars that should be needed are the two SLF4J jars, the Commons Logging jar, and Axis jars. I'd prefer to go ahead and exclude the unneeded parts.
Where do I specify the name of the .jar to include that contains the Recommender implementation? It'd be OK to require it to have a certain name like "recommender.jar" and hard-code that it must be under lib, if that's better.
I suppose I'd prefer the war be named "taste" as before, or "mahout-taste" just to make this path more manageable, but it's a tiny pointl.
(I had just instructed people to copy dats to src/main/resources/org/apache/mahout/cf/taste/example/grouplens under the examples/ module and reference it there. Saves a "mkdir" and seems more appropriate.
If mvn package produces a .war, great. The Jetty target is cool too.
I can then swoop in and update the documentation and commit a few other tweaks I had in my patch. Then I think we're good to go as far as this issue is concerned.
