Hi all,

When I try to compile the latest version of the neo4j-rdf-sail, to include neo4j with Sesame, I'm getting en error message from maven:

[INFO] Scanning for projects...
[ERROR] The build could not read 1 project -> [Help 1]
[ERROR]   The project org.neo4j:neo4j-rdf-sail:0.6-SNAPSHOT (C:\Downloads\neo4j-rdfsail\pom.xml) has 1 error

I get a similar error message with the 0.5 tag as well. As I understand that from the error message and the referenced maven help documents, I'm obviously missing some external pom file, that's not included in the SVN for the neo4j-rdf-sail itself. But how do I fix that? Hope somebody could give me some clarification. I am not really familiar with maven I have to add. So what confused me a bit was, that removing the <parent>.*</parent> part of the pom made maven compile something. However, the final tests failed and also there was no final *.jar file created (which I'd expect as the outcome of the whole building process, right?)

Cheers, Dennis
