If you want to take a crack at it, it shouldn't be that difficult to  
add the svn url and revision number.  The ServerInfo data comes from  
the generated file org/apache/geronimo/system/serverinfo/geronimo- which is created by modules/system/maven.xml.  The  
tricky part is getting the data from svn into maven.

Not specifically.  Each jar we include with Geronimo has a version  
number, but Geronimo is designed to support adding and removing of  
components so the components may not be there.  Geronimo is also  
designed to support multiple version of components running at the  
same time (so you can do a rolling upgrade), so it would be difficult  
to pin this down.

In the 1.x future, I hope to have better class loader diagnostics  
available which will let us determine which jars (including the  
version number) have been loaded into class loaders.
