I agree with everyone else that it is really great to have these 
unstable builds being produced and posted on a regular basis!  It will 
help encourage users to pick up the latest more quickly and provide us 
with quicker feedback.

How is it expected that users will find these unstable builds?  Is there 
some way to get to the unstable builds from the geronimo web site?  I 
think more people would find it and use it if there was a link from the 
downloads page to .

One more question:  How long will these builds "hang around"?  I see 
that there are still builds from 1.0 out there.  Just a nit - but it 
would be nice if we could put the most recent build at the top of the list.
