Guess I am now an official member of the Ben H. misdirected e-mail club ;-) Sorry. I intended
my email as a 
heads-up to a friend who could suffer some pain were he not aware of custom built packages
in the Geronimo 
build. Again, my apologies.

FWIW, if the project does need to customize a package (not a great state of affairs, but it
will occasionally 
happen), I'd suggest adopting a consistent naming convention for the custom package (whatever
it is just be 
consistent). Ideally that naming convention would also serve as a key to building a url into
the URL space for finding the actual patch.
