Subject Re: [ANN] Geronimo 1.0 milestone 5 (M5) released - Thank you Jeff Genender

I think you're forgetting someone pretty darn important.... ;)

Jeff, the project and users owe you a big thanks for your leadership  
in bringing Geronimo and Tomcat together and getting that stack to  
certify.  Every single release we've ever announced to date has  
received the exact same question... "Why aren't you guys using  
Tomcat?? You know, the *Apache* servlet container?!!"  We always  
said, "We'd love to have a Tomcat integration, wanna help?"  Here we  
are, two years into the project, and for the first time we'll be able  
to say something much better about our Tomcat support on this release...

"Blame, Jeff"

Thanks for all the 3am week nights and all day weekends over the last  
six+ months.  You are a real stand-up guy.

Our gratitude,
The Geronimo Community
