Quick thought.  There are pages on the geronimo wiki that contain installation instructions[1] and usage instructions[2].  Those links could be placed under the appropriate headings on the "Apache Geronimo Development Tools Subproject" website.  Thoughts?

Hi Erik, Jason and Viet, Today I've updated the "Apache Geronimo Development
Tools Subproject" website (below) to include the latest information about the
new release of the Geronimo Eclipse Plugin.

Excellent.  I'll take a look and let you know if there are any issues.

I've also included some information about the J2G Migration tool from some of
the notes in this thread. Since I don't know a lot about this new tool, I'm
hoping you all might review what I have thus far to see if it's kinda what you
all had envisioned. Also, every Sunday I push out the latest trunk build of the
Geronimo Eclipse plugin to our unstable site (below). I've assumed it's okay to
do the same for the J2G plugin as well and have listed it in the downloads

That's not just okay, it's fantastic.   Thanks for doing that.
