I didn't know about that as well as I did not see anybody reported this 
:( Do you know how to work it out as the idea is to build Tomcat outside 
of the assembly module? Do you think that creating a flag in the 
assembly module to build Tomcat would work?

Hmm, the Tomcat dependency were commented out just because it breaks the 
build *and* (what's even more important) for people who are interested 
in trying it out - running Tomcat inside Geronimo. They could only 
uncomment it and voila - give it a try. Now, they'll have to read the 
wiki page, which may become unreadable and maintaining it may be cumbersome.

I do see a solution for it, but it requires to touch the assembly module 
(which I didn't mean to do because making mistake there breaks everything).

Do you know about any other possible solution?
