Subject Re: Name for administrative security realm
Date Mon, 27 Nov 2006 06:51:47 GMT
There was only one comment on the proposed name for administrative security
realm.  Addressing that comment, the new name is "geronimo-admin".  I hope
there won't be any objections with this name.  I will wait for 48 hours
before committing the change and resolving this name thingy.
