I assume you mean we'd prioritise a release of naming-core?

I'd definitely like to split it into more jars. 

Immediate thoughts:

naming-core (keeping jmx bits in here for the moment)
naming-config (Brett's XmlConfigurator bits)
naming-factory (Most of the factories; EjbRef, TransactionRef)
naming-factory-mail (Couple of factories that add a dep)
naming-resource (core.resource package; resource factories; resource refs)

I don't fully grokk resources though, so I might be missing a lot. 

What do you think? Too much?

Immediate thoughts:

Remove apachecon logo

Do we put javadoc, clover, source-html'd into svn for deploys?

Run maven then cp by hand onto svn? rsync --delete locally?

First step, fix the bits that mention server.xml and any other Tomcat
specific stuff.
