Just some fodder from watching the questions to the list:

1) Qn: I'd like to find out more and help etc. What do I do next?
   An: Monitor this mail list. A mail list for Geronimo is in the works
and a CVS repository. At some point these resources will come together and
the initial source code commit made. Until then, it's empty.

2) Qn: Can you mail me if you're interested in me helping.
   An: That's not how open source communities generally work. To the
people who have asked to be contacted if Apache are interested, it's
unlikely that this will happen with all the huge interest that this has
generated. Better to stay in touch with the mail list.

3) Qn: Will it involve JBoss code.
   An: It is unable to due to licensing reasons.

4) Qn: Will it <insert some technical phrase here>?
   An: As the initial codebase is apparantly there [ie) we're passed
design phase already], it's probably worth holding these questions off
until the codebase may be seen.

5) Qn: What are the rules for Geronimo?
   An: Standard Apache incubation I imagine.

6) Qn: What's the website?

7) Qn: What tools do I need to learn?
   An: CVS. patch. Using a mail list.
