Are there no binary versions of OpenEJB that we integrate with?  If  
not, how can we get to that point...

Or we need to check in the OpenEJB tree to our project... and/or use  
a SVN property to force the OpenEJB sources to check out when G is  
checked out... but I think that would only be a short-term solution,  
as I believe that we need binaries to integrate with.  Having to  
build dependent projects as prerequisites for G to build is adding  
extra complexity and increasing the chances that the build will break.

Is this the norm?  For developers to not run top-level builds?

Oh... what does OpenEJB need from G to build?  This is another  
chicken and egg... :-(

I did not realize that OpenEJB was so closely coupled to the Geronimo  
code-base.  Can someone quickly explain what parts of G OpenEJB is  
dependent upon?
