Will do.

Pretty much what you describe above.  A very generic, Geronimo- 
centric, build/test initiative.  The idea is still pretty soft and  
what we do in it is really up to us.  No master plan other than  
building/testing has been a bane on the project since day one and  
this is an attempt to get a lot of momentum behind solving that  
problem in a community-lead fashion.

I'm really excited to see where we can take it and what we can make  
from it all.

I'm personally happy to work with anyone.  We are working really  
closely with Continuum already.
