Unfortunately its the elephant in the room and there is clear evidence of
the confusion going on.  That evidence was posted above, so it should be
discussed as its cornerstone to being part of the problem.  Not to mention
it was central focus to the discussions that occurred at ActiveMQ (and
Camel, etc) in the past.

Perhaps that discussion is not meant for dev and is a PMC issue.  But it
certainly is a reason for some of the kinks in the armor.  Bottom line is
their is certainly confusion in the community.

and this is what its all about ;-) Community and moving forward.  I do think
that Artemis should have more prominence on the ActiveMQ web site to show
its a strong part of the ActiveMQ family.  What we don't want to do is have
Artemis be another Apollo (supposed AMQ6 and ultimately abandoned).  So
IMHO, we should make Artemis more strongly associated with the ActiveMQ
project off its parent and build it from there.  Begin on the adoption and
migration path and get that community going.  Then its all good and everyone
is happy.  With that growth, perhaps Artemis WILL be the new ActiveMQ 6. :-)

Side note: Clebert is a great guy and one of the folks who I do see who
cares about the community and the code.  I'm not throwing anyone else under
the bus by comparison, but he has made it clear that he places Apache first
in past discussions.  For this its good to have him working with all of this
and I do know his intentions were benevolent and not that of his employer.
