Subject Re: [VOTE] -- M5 release -- (Was Re: 1.0-M5 candidate build)

Well, as soon as IzPack 3.8 goes final, it should be in Maven -- the
previous release is.  I would be happy to make that a condition of
Geronimo 1.0, but I don't think it's necessary for M5.

It's fine with me if the installer is build by unpacking the assembly zip.
