Jetty and Tomcat J2EE and Minimal all work as of yesterday.

As of right now "mvn install" from an empty repo will never work due  
to issues with Maven that are pending fixes in 2.0.5.

This is what the 'build' script resolves.

Also due to the OpenEJB2 jars built with m2 not being published, due  
to G 1.2 jars built with m2 not being published, you need to manually  
compile OpenEJB2 w/m2 half-way through the m2 build of G 1.2.

This is what the 'bootstrap' script resolves.

So, if you replaced "mvn install" with "bootstrap" then the above  
statement is accurate.

I agree, need to get some input from Keven to see what is needed to  
get the TCK running off of the m2 build.  I think that can happen in  
parallel to the first step (or steps if you include deprecation of m1).

Jeff, I believe (strongly) that it is very important to deprecate  
(not remove, but deprecate) the m1 build ASAP to prevent widening the  
gap of differences between the outputs of the two builds.
