Hello,

I've been trying to use the Geronimo Maven Plugin:

            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.apache.geronimo.buildsupport</groupId>
                <artifactId>geronimo-maven-plugin</artifactId>
                <configuration>
                    <geronimoHome>/my/path/to/geronimo-jetty8-javaee6-3.0-beta-1</geronimoHome>
                    <logOutput>true</logOutput>
                    <assemblyArchive>${project.build.directory}/${project.build.finalName}-geronimo.zip</assemblyArchive>
                </configuration>
            </plugin>

When I start the Geronimo server before running the goal "geronimo:start", I get the following output:

[INFO] --- geronimo-maven-plugin:3.0-M1:start (default-cli) @ deployment-control ---
[org.codehaus.mojo.pluginsupport.logging.Logging] : Initialized

Which actually seems to do nothing! And, I also see nothing as logs on the server log output. And, when I *do not* start the server before running the Maven goal, the log will be like:

[INFO] --- geronimo-maven-plugin:3.0-M1:start (default-cli) @ deployment-control ---

Nothing happens!

Is there anything reference documentation for this plugin? What am I doing wrong?
Maybe it is good to mention that the assembly required is properly prepared for the plugin.

Thanks in advance,
