back to the repository - and I am not thinking they are the applications.

Geronimo at one time was able to share repositories, probably in G2.1, but
currently I believe the only way to have more than one Geronimo instances that
do not collide with each other is for them to each have their own copy of a

With Rex's revision 1174575 (see GERONIMO-5987), I am able to startup multiple
instances of the trunk 3.0 tomcat7 javaee6 bundle starting with the snapshot
released today (it did not work for G3.0 trunk builds until today).

Otherwise, what you have listed for read-only vs. read-write is correct, but
with the addition of "repositories" as read-write. I have updated the related
wiki page to reflect this identification.
