My preference is to not have a dummy file, but to get the build to work
I thought I removed it from the eclipse/.classpath for jsword project.
And I thought I changed and tested the ant build scripts to make sure it
didn't require the resource directory. Hmm. I'll look at it tonight.

I noticed that, too. It appears that it only lasts for 6 months. All
that needs to be done, is delete it and it will be recreated.
We probably should add it to "clean".
I am also wondering whether it would be good to do a weekly clean build.
This would also entail a fresh checkout of source from cvs (i.e. make
sure "limbo" stuff is gone from the former directories.) Once we move to
svn this will be managed automatically as it also revisions the
filesystem, in addition to files.
On another note, should we get a verifiable certificate for the 1.0 release?
Perhaps we don't use WebStart at all for releases, but only for nightly.
