I was going to do this as part of our website - doing a "how are we 
doing?" page.

I suspect that there's a lot more things we can put there, and little 
things that people are familiar with.  Like, it's really cool that it 
runs velocity.  It's pleasantly surprising.  it's not surprising that it 
won't run Tomcat (yet).

Lets try to keep finding small things that work.  Maybe we need little 
programs that show functionality - i.e. we can't just say "log4j works" 
as I'm not sure what that means w/o context.   However, having a little 
proggie that shows log4j working might be good.

The point would be to support your subject line "What can we do?"...

Once I dig out of my pile, I'll try to put something on the website for 
us and come up w/ more examples...
