Thanks for the note.  This is the right place to discuss.

There are two separate threads of discussion that I can think of :

1) Technical - if the donation fits technically into what we are  
doing (I'm sure it does...)

2) Administrative - how, where and when

As for #2 my questions to you are :

a) What is the timing for this donation?  How soon?

b) Do you see this as coming straight to Geronimo to be part of  
Geronimo initially, or to the Apache Incubator where we could work on  
it with you and then make the decision of coming to the Geronimo  
project or being something else, like a stand-alone top-level project.

c) I assume that you'd be offering committers to help us with the  
codebase and to continue working and expanding.  Do you have an idea  
of how many?

Thanks for doing this, and we look forward to discussion on both  
subjects above.
