Well, I am dumbfounded by what we'll require to do. It starts with
this: I want to package Cocoon, for which I want to packaeg Excalibur,
for which I need to package an open JMS implementation, for which I
need maven; to build it! Phew!
So, I want to first help out on testing maven, wherein we can prevent
downloading a huge number of plugins. I also want people to suggest a
means to get a free JMS implementation. I'll try looking at Joram over
the weekend, but suggestions are welcome.
