Subject Re: Geronimo v2.2 discussion

Looks like discussion on this thread has died down a bit but the clock 
is still ticking ... New Years will be here all too soon and IIUC we're 
trying to beat that clock!!

Some things in addition to what you've listed (I'll update the wiki with 
these too):
- There are a number of snapshots still in use:
   - OpenEJB
   - Axis2
   - Axiom
   - xBean
   - wadi
   - j2ee-connector spec
   - jaspi spec
   - servlet spec
   - concurrent spec
   - geronimo jaspi component
   - XmlSchema
   - woden*
   - jspc-compiler
   - and various maven plugins.
   Some of these may be just as simple as using a released version but 
others may require that we get releases from these projects (or push 
releases of those that we control).  The latter will slow us down.  I'll 
start working on removing these.
- Genesis.  I see you've already upgraded to the newly released 1.5 ... 
but there's been some talk about Genesis 2.0.  I'm fine with 1.5 but if 
folks think we need 2.0 then we need to get moving on that.
- I guess we'll have to either release a number of the plugins again or 
figure out some compatibility solution as we did for 2.1.3+.  Ideally, 
we should think about compatibility ahead of time even if we find we 
need to release some (or all) of the plugins again.  I'm specifically 
thinking of samples, server-repo, daytrader, etc...  I don't think these 
need to be concurrent with 2.2 but we need to make sure we have a plan 
that doesn't require server changes before we release the 2.2 server.
- I'm a bit worried about the TCK implications (which you've already 
mentioned).  There will be a number of issues supporting Java SE6 as 
well as some issues that I know have been out there for a while.  I 
think it will make our life easier to focus exclusively on SE6.

I've been assuming all along that you are planning to be the release 
manager for 2.2 Donald.  Is that correct?  I can help as well if you 
want to share the burden (and if nobody objects).
