For my part, I'd prefer to follow this approach going forward.  I  
agree with Guillaume that it may not totally work for Geronimo unless  
we choose an SVN number as the release point so people can track  
changes to a branch.

Having been through the release process a few times I think that  
using Maven to generate the artifacts is so much simpler and  
automagically updating the repo is far easier as well.

I'd like to propose (in a separate thread) that we adopt this process  
going forward for specs.  If the vote succeeds then I think David  
could follow it for these specs as a test case.
