That's the most important thing.

More documentation explaining the 2 containers and how you can change
your setting during installation or after will benefit everybody.

This will avoid a Coke vs Pepsi war within the user community !!!

Guys,

I've updated the FAQ with an entry that I think helps explain the
duality.

  http://wiki.apache.org/geronimo/FrequentlyAskedQuestions
  
Jeff (and others) can you check that this is a fair description.
I've also started work on the general jetty in geronimo documentation
to get it up to the standard that Jeff has for tomcat.

+1. 

So long as all our efforts are acknowledge and no disrespect is shown,
we
should be able to do this without hurt feelings.   Healthy competition
between the containers will only improve them both and so long as
we don't involve our users in container-wars then it should be good
for all.

It is true that we have been moderately quiet on Geronimo lists
themselves,
but we have been working on Jetty 6, which has largely been motivated by
creating a container that is even more suited to being embedded in
Geronimo
with improved support of G- threadpools, interceptors etc.


cheers
