Subject Re: Use Truezip in Geronimo deployment

I'd rather use a deployment which can handle unpacked archives and zip them
on the fly.
The karaf deployer supports that (if you're in Geronimo 3).  It may even
work with symlinks (not sure though) so you could link to the output of your
build directly.
Just my 2 cents.
