Hi David,

I'm pleased to hear that you are in 'go-go-go' mode.  As someone who has
used and supported Apache open source software for years, I was rapt
back in 2003 to hear of the Geronimo project.  So I subscribed to the
Geronimo mailing list, to keep up-to-date with progress.

Admittedly, I was beginning to have my doubts, based on your rarely
changing front page, and the quiet nature of the mailing list.

May I be so bold as to enquire whether you expect to have a first
production release available anytime soon?  I mean, is present activity
mostly to do with attaining certification, rather than primary
development work?

Aaron, Dain and I the better part of a week (and we still messed up the source tar).  Right
now, we're in go-go-go mode and breaking that momentum for a release wouldn't be a good thing.
