server development tree.</li>
	<li>Trunk has begun preparations to hold the new JavaEE 6 compatible server development
tree.  Using OSGi as the framework for Geronimo has been discussed and work has begun in sandbox
to develop a working model.</li>

within a future version of the Geronimo server.</li>
