Subject RE: Could not build Geronimo server from SVN branch 2.2
Date Thu, 12 Nov 2009 04:24:57 GMT
My build of Geronimo server branch 2.2 is successful. Great.
Thanks a lot to 
Keven, Donald, Joe, Jeff and Forrest
This is a big system and I need some time to learn it.

	Hi Fei Li,
	There are multiple threads on multiple mailing lists for this same problem. 

	There was a general problem that seems to be a combination of an issue with configuration
changes to the maven repository at <>
 and potentially a bug in the maven dependency report plugin. See
for additional information.

	If you are interested in working on the development of Geronimo 3.0, you'd be more than welcome.
If you are interested in using Geronimo, I would not recommend using trunk. You should be
using geronimo/server/branches/2.2 or geronimo/server/tags/2.1.4, instead.
