I'd like to volunteer some Gluecode resources (non-Geronimo-committer!) 
to setup a simple CI-like system - it just moronically does a clean 
checkout, build and email if failure to the dev list, and keeps trying 
until success, in which case also an email to dev list....  then you 
could look at the dev list to see where we are...

(This isn't an original idea...)
