    I might be only my idea but there is a difference between do not give
any information about the status of Geronimo and the J2EE certification and
do not give any information at all.

    I must admit that I do not know anything about the Sun's TCK, so I would
like you to explain me how it prevents you from posting an anouncement in
the web site telling the users and interested parties: we have fixed this
errors, we have added this functionality, we have updated this components,
we need help with this feature, etc.

    I am sure that you know what I am going to say but I will say it anyway:
the Open Source projects are about community. You need people to get
involved with the development and to use the software and you won't be able
to get that people if you don't communicate your progress.

I got the nightly build script working but getting a clean build is
tricky because Geronimo depends on so many things. So this task is
still considered a work in progress.

The majority of the effort is being spent on J2EE 1.4 certification
right now and has been for a few months. The trouble is that we're
bound by the Sun license agreement for the TCK and we can't talk about
it *at all*. Once this hurdle is passed, there will be more outward
