I'd like to second Erin's comment about the "Deploying Applications"
section.  The following command will not work, I promise.

<geronimo_home>/bin/java -jar deployer.jar help [command]

I also agree that Java 5 compatibility should be emphasized -- perhaps
"Geronimo is certified on Sun's JDK 1.4.2, but aside from the CORBA
features, it should run well on any 1.4.2 or 1.5 JVM."

I also think it's worth mentioning the "login" command in the
Deploying applications section.

In the significant changes section:
 - We should add plugins.  "Geronimo applications, server features,
and integrated products can be distributed as Geronimo plugins.
Plugins are easy to install, automatically download any dependencies,
and do not require server restarts."  Perhaps a separate point for
server cloning.  "Using the plugin infrastructure, applications or
modules can be copied from one Geronimo installation to another (from
developer to developer, test to production, etc.)."

 - For the console point, let's add "JMS resource configuration"

 - The hot deploy exclusion for the repository is not correct.  Hot
deployed files are copied into the repository like anything else.

 - For the Little G point, the grammar is wrong.  "Little-G, a
minimal, small footprint, Tomcat and Jetty configurations are
available."

 - We should add a point about in-place deployment.  "Geronimo
supports in-place deployment, which means an archive or directory can
be deployed without being copied into the Geronimo directory tree."

In the overall project status, I think we need to list initial Java EE
5 support as a major goal of the next release.

In the Jira section, I think all the entries should be word-wrapped at
77 characters or so.

Thanks,
    Aaron
