why not move the samples back under geronimo/server, so they are 
maintained and versioned with each release and can then be used as 
additional testsuite tests?  If not, releasing right after a server 
release is fine.

everything in svn with no zipfiles in the wiki

either move them under geronimo/server or mirror our server svn structure

good goal to have, if time permits
