That sounds like a good focus, though I'm not too sure about whether 
we'll have a full Servlet 3.0 version available in the very near 
future.  The Aries support is looking like it's in pretty good shape 
with Jarek's recent success in deploying the Aries sample applications 
on Geronimo 3.0.  We're also in pretty good shape with the OSGi components.

As far as the Java EE 6 features, we have all of the APIs in place now, 
but we don't really have a lot of the providers available for these new 
features.  Servlet 3.0, the new OpenEJB features, and JSR 299/330 
support are probably the biggest laggers right now.

Given the state of the Aries integration work, we probably should start 
start work on moving toward a M1 release now.  I do have a few questions 
about what needs to be done from here:

1)  What additional features do we feel we need to complete before 
releasing the milestone.
       a)  Are there any additional features in the Aries integration 
that should be completed for the M1?
       b)  What Java EE features should we have working for this release?

2)  For our dependencies, will we need real releases, or will we ship 
snapshots based on know revision levels?
