Way to go Matt!!!

Here's what I observed.

Building from source zip:
- At first I tried just to build using mvn.  This failed because it was 
looking for a car-maven-plugin with version 2.0-M3.  jdillon then 
reminded me that I needed to run bootstrap first.  mvn -Dstage=bootstrap 
failed with missing:
  ... Do these jars need to be added to the local repo in the image? 
I'm not certain that it is essential to be able to build from the image 

Binary images:
- I started all 4 server images ... played with a few portlets on the 
web console for the jee5 images, and deployed a simple war file.  All 
that went fine.
- One annoying thing was that after having started the server images 
using the startup script I couldn't terminate them using the shutdown 
script.  I received this:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: 
   ... However, I could still shut it down via the web console (in the 
case of the jee5 images).  We could probably just document that it must 
be terminated via the web console and recommend java -jar to start the 
minimal images so that ctrl-c can be used to terminate it.


Given that this is a milestone I'm +1 even with these issues.  I think 
could document the shutdown problem and make the cxf jars available 
someplace for download.
