I think that you are on the right track but you are still struggling with the maven and maven repos concepts.
If you want to make changes in the look and feel you can change each project, for that I recommend you to fork the projects in github.
Because maven will check first in your own local repository to see if you have a local version of each artefact, if you change and build it locally, maven will pick up yours first than the one provided in the maven servers. because we are u sing snapshot versions (daily builds) you will need to compile your changed components every day that you want to build your own version.
In order to build your own version you need to clone the kie-wb-distributions repository and then build the kie-wb project. As you mention this download all the modules which sources are located in other repositories for example: jbpm-console-ng, drools-wb for the bpm and rules modules respectively.
Can you elaborate a little bit on what kind of changes are you looking to make?
Mauricio thank you for quick respone.
I have also one other question and one idea:
1) Does workbench has some other build-in look styles or what are possible default looks (is there only one motiv)? Does user can somehow change look of workbench (not from .css or other xml files but from inside workbench running on server)?
2) Maybe it would be easier for me to decompile/unzip .war file, find .css, classes etc. change them manually and replace them inside .war file?
Maybe it is easier to change look this way then forking on github with dependencies which I not clearly understand?
Btw. I would be delighted if it is possible to somehow change look into something like Liferay style (2 videos on site http://www.liferay.com/products/liferay-portal/features/portal).
Is it possible to simple change .css etc to get another look?
I'm afraid about loosing functionality of jBPM (if i mess inside .war), I want to change look only.
Is it also possible to just simple replce all default settings with my .css etc?
Is there any documentation about changing look (i found only doc. about using workbench)?
