3. Create a new space for Apache Geronimo 2.2 (similar to the spaces we 
have for 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 2.0, and 2.1).  Add new documents specific to 
2.2 into this new space.  It would be fairly sparse for now.  When we 
complete the 2.1 docs we can clone them into the 2.2 space and integrate 
the 2.2 specific documents into the appropriate sections/structure.

I can look into what would be necessary to create the 2.2 space and add 
a link to it on along side the other 5 releases.
