I don't think we ever done that before because because up til now  
everyone has just known what's changed.  For this spec he did say  
"Fixed, verified to be compliant and ready for release." which based  
on the diff sadly does describe what has changed for this release :)   
Anyway, if this is another requirement for a Geronimo release, I'm  
sure David will add it to the remaining specs he is releasing.

BTW, David was out of town for the holiday weekend and I think he  
will be back tomorrow of the next day.

Happy New Year,
