I've removed all the 'SNAPSHOT' and other hard coded versions I can 
find and successfully built geronimo from rev  226951 after removing my 
maven geronimo and geronimo-spec repository entries.  I see dblevins 
has posted source and binary tar.gzs etc but I have no idea how to 
produce them from a plain maven build.  I consider his 
script unacceptable for releases because it modifies what is checked 
out from  svn.

I'm going to start running tck tests on my build and hope we can 
straighten out how to package stuff up later.  If there are problems 
tomorrow I can always start over.
