I have some cycles to spend on the annotation impl now, can you give me a little guidance in how you think we should implement this for JSF-RI, I saw something on jetty annotations, does this pertain to this topic.

I have actually written the JSF-RI modules for geronimo, I am still testing them. I have successfully tested some sample apps and they seem to work fine, a starting point anyways.

Did you implement their AnnotationProcessor interface?
