Subject Re: How do we build Geronimo?
Date Mon, 07 May 2007 08:05:31 GMT
I don't think anyone has a problem rebuilding geronimo as much as  
needed to pick up code changes for the tck.  IIUC the automated tools  
jason is working on already do this.  However there is some need in  
the tck framework to know how the server is laid out, for instance to  
install certificates in the correct location, and changing that will  
disrupt not only the tck scripting but many of our users.

I kinda think that proposals to change the layout of the server  
should be discussed and voted on with a pretty large fraction of  
committers voting just to make sure that everyone is aware of what  
might change and has thought about it carefully. I'm afraid I haven't  
kept up with the changes that led to this discussion so I might be  
looking in the wrong direction.

Just my thoughts
