I'm not sure where the source for that is, since they don't have svn
elements in their pom. I'd *much* prefer to release Aries from the
Aries project. Creating forks in Karaf and Geronimo won't help keep
the Aries community together. After all, where does a user go to
discuss that Geronimo release of Aries? The Geronimo list or the Aries
list. As a fork it splits the community.

So I'm +1 for doing Aries maintenance releases, but -1 for doing them
outside Aries.
