That doc could use some work. 

Are you building trunk or branches/3.0-M2?

The general technique for building geronimo would be:

  mvn clean install

In general, a "-Dstage=bootstrap", is only needed if certain Geronimo artifacts are not already
available from remote maven repositories (e.g. maven central or apache snapshot repo). "-Dstage=assembly"
is a shortcut for performing a partial build (bypassing some parts of our build). 

What is the problem you're running into? I built M2 yesterday, without a problem -- however
there are deployment issues related to the recent upgrade to Tomcat 7.0.6 -- it looks like
Ivan committed a work-around for this problem.
