Hi Anders,

I'm going to support (i.e. apply patches related to M2 as soon as
possible) you (and anybody) who's going to help with the migration.
I'm learning Maven2 so I couldn't imagine a better way to learn it
than while doing the migration. I have alone thought about it, but the
learning surve is too steep or am a little sidetracked. I'm thus very
glad seeing you doing it, too.

It's a very good start. I'd bet Geronimo is a huge project, so it's
going to be some sort of proof of concept that Maven2 can handle it
(when Maven2 developers read it, I'm dead ;))

Yes. Let's take smaller steps, so that we won't get lost in Maven2 and
Geronimo build's complexity.

Keep up with the excellent job, Anders! I'm just applying the patch
you've just submitted.
