A few points/questions..

I suspect we will want to pull a few of the samples (servlets-examples, 
jsp-examples, ejb-examples) into the generated G images (definitely into 
the installer as selectable options and arguably into the zipped binary 
images).  This means that the main G tree will have dependencies on 
things that are now outside of main trunk (geronimo/trunk).  Will the 
restructure somehow address getting them pulled into the main G 
distributions?  Does this imply that developers need to also download 
the samples source when doing a build of the main trunk?  Or is the 
assumption that full builds require the full geronimo root checkout? 
Perhaps we move a few select select samples (servlets-examples, 
jsp-examples, ejb-examples)into the main trunk and leave the others 

In a separate thread you suggested versioning the samples.. Are you 
suggesting versioning the individual samples?  Or are you saying that 
the group of samples would be versioned as applicable to a specific G

Should we consider putting these applications under a common directory 
(e.g. system) that groups them and signifies their strong ties to the G 

Also, the same point as above applies about the main tree build 
dependency on the system applications.  I see you included console and 
welcome in the trunk.  I suspect uddi-server and jmxdebug also belong in 
  trunk as they are likely part of the default binary distribution.  I 
did  hear that the jmxdebug app is being reworked..
