I think you are claiming that downloading about 5 poms is taking 2  
hours which is highly unlikely for a total size of about 10 kb no  
matter what your internet connection or maven repo you are using.   
What you may not realize is that the samples are not only simple  
javaee applications but also demonstrate "predeploying" them into  
geronimo as geronimo plugins.  This involves downloading most of the  
geronimo jars from the maven repo as well.   I think this is pulling  
down 50-100mb which with a slow repo could possibly take a couple hours.

After you've built the sample once is a second build faster?

To me the main interest of the samples is as geronimo plugins, but we  
might be able to come up with a profile that would avoid building the  
plugins and pulling down most of geronimo.
