Fundamental changes to the way the project is structured?  Huh?  Do  
you mean that the 'geronimo-' prefix is fundament to structure?  Its  
a naming convention and not related to structure at all.

The structure bits which this email was started for are related to  
the way that the G project has ended up from a long time with  
Maven1.  And how it would be better to restructure the project to  
organize components, dependency modules and to take advantage of  
Maven2 integrated multi-moulde system.

No... we spend way more time making patches and applying them and  
praying that someone will vote on them than we do developing Geronimo.

And to this point we really have not done much restructuring... only  
fixing modules to confrom to standards.  Now its about how do we  
organize those modules in the best way to fix into your project.

And I can tell you right now that if you think that they all fit into  
a nice little "modules" bucket as peers with no hierarchy, that you  
are on much more crack than I am :-P
