      Description

      The descriptors at http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-assembly-plugin/descriptor-refs.html do not match the actual descriptors included in the maven-assembly-plugin-2.2-beta-2.jar file. The documentation use properties such as ${project.build.outputDirectory}, which seems to cause problems in actual descriptor files (on windows, at least, it includes the full absolute path).

      It is not easy to understand how to go about writing custom assembly descriptors.
