Hi Kevan,

Dave Blevins worked out a tool to limit the number of necessary deps
in OpenEJB. I think it could be used in Geronimo as well.

Is there a way to include all the necessary build sources in a single
Ubuntu dir in the repo and point m2 to it? m2 could download the deps
to let us build offline. Don't know whether it makes sense, but
thought I threw it out to others see what I couldn't.
