I think Joe has raised a valid point here...  Providing ongoing unstable 
builds is quite useful.  However, if there is no simple link to them 
from the Geronimo website then how will users find them?

Why not add a simple link to the unstable builds (or at least the 
location of the most recent 1.1 build) on the Geronimo main download page?

This will encourage user participation and feedback for 1.1..
