Subject Re: Geronimo site POC using Confluence & Autoexport
Date Thu, 24 Aug 2006 05:17:02 GMT
Assuming you did have access to the box, what steps would be required  
to get things setup?  I know I'm asking an unnatural question as I  
typically start my thinking while staring at the command prompt and  
type commands iteratively till things work.  But I'm just thinking if  
we could maybe figure that out, we could work with someone who does  
have access.

I'd also like to use this for GBuild and OpenEJB, so I'm keen on  
seeing it solved.
