Hi Jacek,

I like to entertain the thought that I am an ok programmer ;-) And I  
was hesitant whether to send my initial message, as I knew it would  
appear like I am looking for a shortcut to become a Geronimo  
committer. All I can say to that, is that with the amount of time I  
spend on Cayenne, I don't see how I can make meaningful contributions  
to Geronimo code at the moment. On the other hand helping with  
Confluence is a task I know I can do without too much distraction  
from my current work, so I figured I'd offer help.

Regarding my interest in Geronimo project, of course it is related to  
Cayenne. I wasn't ready to talk about it yet, but since it got out...  
Geronimo seems like a natural first choice in our effort to closer  
integrate Cayenne in a J2EE stack. In particular implementing EJB3  
Persistence API:

I understand that wider EJB3 work will be targeting Geronimo 2.0, and  
will be done during the next 12 or so months? Are there specific  
plans for the persistence part of the spec?

Cayenne EJB3 work is planned for approximately the same period of  
time. Still as we are busy finishing current 1.2 release, no final  
decision has been made regarding EJB3-persistence in Cayenne 2.0  
(although it seems very likely to be positive). Once we start the  
actual work on that, I'd love to work closer with Geronimo community  
(and of course anyone from Geronimo is welcomed to join cayenne-devel  
to collaborate on that).

So please take the Confluence offer a gesture of good will. Becoming  
a sysadmin at Apache is really not my ultimate aspiration :-)
