Just to clarify you mean we should have this:

   <name>Geronimo :: Servlet API</name>

So the version number is a single non-dotted increasing integer?

BTW for most APIs we will be able to simply release a certified  
version and never update, but for some APIs, like JavaMail, are  
mostly implementation code, we will have to to patch releases.  Also  
if we get into the habit of adding JavaDoc documentation over time,  
we will have to do periodic release to get the line numbers in the  
debug symbols to match-up.
