Its very unfortunate that everyone is thinking this way.  After some  
pondering this morning, this statement really bothers me.  These  
smaller components are extremely important to the success of and  
future growth of the community.  When people see Geronimo, they don't  
see the runtime, but the things that reflect its image are things  
like the product documentation, the website, tooling and the  
console.  Thus people's focus on only these runtime components will  
have a negative bearing on the project.  The attitude needs to be for  
each of us, that we make more of an effort in the future to get  
involved in these areas.  If that means that we have to put less  
function in primary components in order to spend time to grow these  
areas, then so be it.
