For all four separate Maven modules:
1.) Put all resources in its "/resources" path
2.) Put all config items in its "/config" path (review existing resources dirs since some stuff that should be in config got put into resources)
3.) clean up POM inheritence and remove old POMs that are no longer needed
4.) Add LICENSE.txt to project
5.) Rename readme.txt to README.txt
Please do this as part of the security work that you are doing when you are in the rice-commons project.
