Thank you Jeff.

Please note that as you look at GERONIMO-1613, ( )
the only patch you should need to apply is the latest one .... 
1613_RemoveDeps4.patch.   This is all inclusive of the other patches 
with the exception of the first patch that Dave Jencks already 
integrated a few weeks back.

BTW, there are also two JIRAs for some problems that I noticed were 
introduced as a result of the first patch (sigh)   .... GERONIMO-1634 ( ) and GERONIMO-1699 
( ).
