I'll look into this.. Also, can someone help clarify the line between 
reusing open source and providing unique project identity.  Basically, 
I'm wondering if it makes any sense to reuse the Tomcat examples (along 
with a few small additional enhancements (e.g. EJBs) as the default 
sample that gets installed with geronimo.  Or is it better to create our 
own Geronimo unique sample?

+1  Yep probably a main "Sample" category on the wiki along with links 
to the individual samples (also on the wiki)..
