This does sound like a Maven problem. It looks like Maven isn't reading 
your settings.xml, if it can't download files from the internet. Or 
maybe not using the right maven home directory, if it doesn't find the 
plugin you downloaded.

I suggest you download the maven-resources-plugin-2.2.jar file, and ask 
maven to install it manually, like this:
mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=org.apache.maven.plugins 
-DartifactId=maven-resources-plugin -Dversion=2.2 -Dpackaging=jar 
-DgeneratePom=true  -Dfile=/path/to/local/maven-resources-plugin-2.2.jar

This should install it to the local repository maven is using, and 
should display a message like "Installing 
/path/to/local/maven-resources-plugin-2.2.jar to /home/jclarke/.m2/...". 
Once you have that directory path, make sure that's where your 
settings.xml file is.

I hope this helps. If you still encounter problems, please let us know, 
and maybe send us a copy of your settings.xml file.

Thanks for your interest in the tool. It's nice to hear about it  :)

I hope we can get things working for you.
