  * any legal, cross-project or personal issues
    that still need to be addressed?

The establishment of a PPMC has aided the organization of the project. 
Added Gianny D'Amour as committer.

The community voted to keep the name "Geronimo"

The ASF has become a J2EE licensee, allowing us to start the 
certification process.

  * plans and expectations for the next period?
To start testing with the J2EE TCK.

To work with the Incubator PMC to provide an interim release allowing 
people to use Geronimo without building from source making it available 
to a larger community.

To address any remaining issues before applying to leave the Incubator.

  * any recommendations for how incubation could run
    more smoothly for you?
The establishment of the PPMC has been a great help.
