This wholesale code import is interesting to me.
I know this has been beaten to death, but this looks at best like a
subproject, most of the commits seem to be from 4-5 folks; folks who
aren't on the PMC, and who don't have a long history with the project,
and folks who all seem to share a single employer. (And this isn't to
knock them, I am sure they are fine folks, I am more noting the
community dynamics) I hear in other messages, that the 'hornetq
community' is stepping up and getting involved....I am left wondering
why this isn't a distinct project on its own.
