Yup.  Here's some background: There was yet another "is Geronimo dead"
thread on this list back in February and people seemed to think that
the web site needed a freshening so I volunteered.  Unfortunately, the
mailing list archive for February 2005 seems to have been lost so that
conversation isn't available anywhere.  But I tried to respect the
consensus that came out of it and I think that my changes are pretty
benign.  The biggest change is adding a lot of "we're not dead just
working on certification" verbiage.

That's a good idea.  One of the problems with the auto-generated site
is that a lot of the pages are "stubs" that don't have any useful
content but Maven doesn't know to *not* generate them.  A few
hand-coded pages with lots of links to the wiki would probably be a
lot more user-friendly because there would be fewer "dead ends."
