Subject Re: Update on documentation progress of Geronimo v2.2

Thanks David for your comments.

I guess we have some different understandings regarding "Users" of
Geronimo.My understanding is that Geronimo is an application server and its
primary user would be application developers. While they might need to know
what a plugin or a gbean is in Geronimo but don't have to build the source
code. That's where my proposal comes from. And mostly they would read
GMOxDOC to learn how to utilize Geronimo for their application development.

And we have another group of "Users"(actually I'd rather call them
"developers" ^_^), they are more interested in Geronimo structure, kernel
and keen on breakthroughs. In my understanding, they would go to GMOXDEV for
more information. 

Any other ideas, please speak up. :)
