EE6 Web Profile is absolutely in our plans. However, should note that we have had web profile-like
capabilities for sometime now...

We currently provide binary distributions of a "minimal" server (Servlet/JSP only) plus a
certified EE5 server. Also, Geronimo supports flexible server assemblies with customized server
functionality. So, you can generate servers which only contain the technologies that your
application(s) require. Much more dynamic than the static notion of "profiles".

We will be providing certified EE6 profile servers, but also be continuing our support for
custom server assemblies.
