Subject Re: should Archiva talk about requesting to become a top level project?

Here's my +1

Initially I was a little skeptical that we could pull off a TLP, I had 
this feeling that we hadn't yet reached the level of interest and 
participation that Continuum has, but since this email I've been reading 
the comments about Archiva online from people using / installing it.

Wow, are people talking about it.  So far it's mostly positive. yay! 
(Congrats everyone!)

Example: Maven Repository Manager - why we chose Archiva

So, with this week of study, I feel that my own critical view of Archiva 
of today is just flat out wrong.
Can it improve? Sure.
Does it work? Very well.
It is perfect? Does it matter? after all what software is perfect? (with 
the exception of maybe unix /bin/true and /bin/false)

Looking forward to the TLP.  Lets do it.
