Then lets ask the community and get feedback.  I personally am speaking
to the CTS releases.  The minimals seem as a no-brainer to me.  I really
think the quad release is the way to go.

I think running the CTS 2 additional times will not create much of a
delay.  If it looks like it will, then we drop the 2 additional.  We
also are setting our sites on Tomcat/Axis2 and Jetty/CXF.  If we *can*
deliver that, then I think its safe to say that all 4 will pass.
However, its possible that it may end up as Jetty/Tomcat/CXF, because
that one works.

I guess to get closer to Kevan's point (and Kevan, correct me if I am
off base here), is...we have a certified stack.  Do we want to set a
date and draw a line in the sand for *some* release, whether its, 2 or 4
certified versions, and the mix of configuration is dependent on who
shows up as certified...and then have 2.0.1 be the official release of
all 4?  Or do we wait for Axis2 to catch up before an official 2.0 release?

Joe, may I ask why you are not up to a quad release if its just running
the tests 2 additional times and causing very little delay?
