> Recent user and dev list issues reminded me that on windows, GERONIMO_HOME, the server
installation directory, should have as small a name as possible, like C:\g, to avoid issues
on windows with too long path names.
> I think we should allow the eclipse plugin user to install a server in such a named directory.
 Currently, on the "Download and Install" screen, the user specifies a directory, but the
server is actually installed in a geronimo-tomcat6-jee5-2.0.1 or geronimo-jetty6-jee5-2.0.1subdirectory
of that server.  I think we should look at using the directory specified as the installation
directory directly, and eliminate this subdirectory.  This may well be related to the server
packaging itself.  It seems the server zip file is packaged starting with the geronimo-{jetty,tomcat}6-jee5-2.0.1
parent directory itself.
> The manual workaround would be to extract the file to your root, rename
the directory to g, and point to that directory when defining the installable runtime.  It
would be nice to have this done automatically with one click, or not require the "extra" steps.
