Hi David,

Thanks for your quick response. Based on your and your fellow committer's comments on this
thread, I suspected you were as frustrated as well.

To answer your immediate question: I may be best to put a short but prominent comment here:
In addition, it may be helpful to update the build instructions included in the source and
put the same warning there.

At least that way, interested developers would be aware of the current issues.

HI Ulrich,

I appreciate your frustration... I've been struggling with various forms of the current problems
for more than a year and think we may finally be close to a working stable solution.  How
and if these problems show up seems to be quite dependent on your local maven environment.
 For instance I have nexus installed locally and configured to never download any org.apache.geronimo.*
artifacts and that has stabilized my builds considerably but concealed the problems other
people are having from me.

I have been trying to update the build status on the geronimo dev list, and you seem to have
found the current thread on the topic.  Do you have a suggestion on a better way?

We also have a buildbot set up but I haven't figured out when it runs or how to trigger it.
 Sometimes it reports interesting errors quickly and other times it seems to just not run.

thanks for your interest!
