Oops. Sorry I was offline yesterday evening playing taxi driver...

Not sure in what manner the "apache way" has slowed this down. Getting  
licensing info correct? May be a PITA, but don't see how that's a bad  
thing... Sorry I got a bit time-constrained. It's not like I really  
enjoy it, either -- which doesn't help...

If you were constrained by implementing forward looking function, then  
svn cp

  might have been useful

People may feel that alpha-1 is good enough... Or Gshell may be at  
alpha-2 by the time G is ready to release

Heh. Now you tell me... Sorry, you need to cancel... :-P I can use  
that as part of my evaluation criteria...

I have no issues with release early, release often. However, I will  
tend to hold Gshell releases slated for a Geronimo release to a higher  
standard than I might otherwise. Once there's a stable gshell release  
base, this may become less of an issue...
