I wouldn't call it overhead. I'd call it oversight. Our community is  
releasing the patches and publishing the binaries. Server release  
votes have covered this, to date. Any process changes must maintain  
this same level of oversight.

We could release them separately. Or, we could include them (as they  
are currently) in the server. The difference is that there would be  
org.apache.geronimo.patches artifacts in our release and snapshot

Either way would work. For simplicity, my tendency is to include them  
in our server tree. However, there may be differing opinions. I'm fine  
either way...
