+1

Is JDK 1.4 still a given or has geronimo upgraded it's JDK dependency
to 1.5 since yoko entered the incubator? We shouldn't change the
required JDK in a point release, so this seems like a good time to
revisit this decision.

That was me. My concern wasn't so much about user docs but developer
level documentation, see the "Answer this question..." yoko issues in
jira. Those questions mostly about being able to attract new
developers.

Yes, the code could use some cleanup but it does pass certification
and we can always improve things later, in another release.

This of course assumes that we don't have to pay too much attention to
backward compatibility. Does each follow-up version have to be a
drop-in replacement of the first 1.0 release? Or is it OK to change
ORB properties and such, as long as the changes are documented in the
release notes (which is what I hope, but I don't know the requirements
of Geronimo and Harmony)?

Lars
