First of all, greeeeeat feedback. I usually ask for this kind of
comments about the INSTALL and the DEV_GUIDE (but without to much success).

Can you send us a INSTALL/DEV_GUIDE patch with this kind of things?

For dev purposes, to use db4kune is the easiest way right now (also
thinking in SVN commits).

For production, I'm working with the generation of one jar and to get
all the properties/configuration files as parameters. The ideal for me
will be to generate a debian package, but I have no experience packaging
java applications currently (in the pom.xml we started to test the
deb-maven-plugin to help with this but is not finished).

maybe this should be in the DEV_GUIDE.

Because to install Kune currently it's a job! take into account that
issue 113 only need to import the /intro/ project (a different and
simplest project than the one in /trunk/) in eclipse.

Mmmmm, since .project is generated from our pom.xml I don't remember who
add this. Maybe guice:

$ mvn dependency:tree
[INFO] [dependency:tree {execution: default-cli}]
[INFO] +- com.google.inject:guice:jar:3.0:compile
[INFO] |  +- javax.inject:javax.inject:jar:1:compile
[INFO] |  \- aopalliance:aopalliance:jar:1.0:compile

Thank you indeed for your feedback.
