Subject Re: Geronimo in year 2008

Replace as much as possible of the gbean infrastructure with xbean- 

Remove the necessity of specifying gbean metadata in java code  

Replace config.ser with xml

Improve maven integration and use maven components and concepts where  
possible.  For instance, the provided scope means "this jar is  
available in this components classloader but not children" ==  
something we don't really support.  Optional dependencies might  
really simplify a lot of configuration.

Come up with an OSGI story

Improve Spring integration

Provide a RBAC security system (such as triplesec or redback)

Improve Roller and Jetspeed integration, including security integration.

I agree with the other proposals too.
