I don't know about what consensus we reached :-)

Bill - the "minimal" profile ( my original proposal ) is almost the same
thing as the 154-only. The big difference is that it keeps the door open
to add jasper-related runtime. 

Having a small download with the minimal profile that download other
components is acceptable - but the main release should be the full
( minimal + various modules and profiles ). I don't think too many 
people like their production servers to go and download stuff :-)
But this is a separate issue - and I have no problem with posting
more binaries ( Remy already does the lite/full )

The question is - should we do "154-only, no 152 allowed" or just "minimal". 
And should we have 2 ( or N ? ) releases, or one release with multiple
binary packages. 

I do like the idea of a repository of modules and experimenting with
downloading ( or updating ) stuff. Jboss allows runtime-changes to almost
any component ( without restarting ), and this is something I allways
wanted to get ( the 3.3 modules kind-of support this feature or 
are very close ). But as part as a common release.
