Right, geronimo-1.1-SNAPSHOT (not 1.1.1-SNAPSHOT).

I'm fine documenting this as long as it's made completely clear it  
isn't at all necessary.  One can build Geronimo just fine when  
skipping the optional 'm:co' step.

Not that I don't agree it's a screwed up situation, but geronimo/tags/ 
1.1.0 is perfectly fine -- building openejb is optional.  It's  
openejb/tags/v2_1/ that's permanently broken.  In fact all the  
openejb 2x tags are broken in exactly the same way.  All openejb 2.x  
releases are cut before Geronimo releases so a given Geronimo release  
doesn't have to have a snapshot dependency on openejb.

What would you recommend?
