I am willing to help write unit tests and fix bugs for JSR 115.  I just joined
the mailing list yesterday.  I have managed to download and build geronimo using
 maven.  I even have a patch ready for the warning message Jetty displays when
starting up.

However, as a newbie I do have some questions around the whole development process.

1. Does running '$> maven site' in the incubator-geronimo folder execute all of
the test cases?
2. Is the patch process:

  * Create a issue in the jira with a description: [PATCH] <issue description>
  * Download the latest version from CVS and apply changes
  * Diff my version with the latest CVS version
  * Attach the patch to the jira issue.
