Personally, I really like this option.    A “minimal” distribution and a “full” distro
would be great.   The full distro with web console and everything is certainly useful for
beginners to get started with ActiveMQ, but really anyone more advanced (or in production
and such) would likely just need the minimal as they could then use whatever management capabilities
they already have.    I’d certainly be in full support for this idea.
