Geronimo has started off with developers from all of those communities. 
We welcome any developers from those communities or elsewhere to get 
involved (including any corporate J2EE companies etc).

Not necessarily instead. Could be as well.

The aim is to reuse any good J2EE components which Apache is allowed to 
reuse. i.e. that Apache is legally able to redistribute as binaries. My 
understanding today is that this includes any BSD / ASF licenced code. 
So we can definitely reuse things already at Apache such as Tomcat & 
Axis & log4j. Plus we should be able to reuse components not at Apache 
right now but which is licenced under BSD / ASF style licences such as  
mx4j,  OpenJMS & Tyrex etc.
