Yeah... but what are they testing for?  The Archiva webapp doesn't
need to hold up to thousands of hits a second. :)

Struts 2 does have some known performance issues.  On the dev list
there's a renewed effort to figure out how to get away from OGNL (the
prime suspect) and move to a different expression language.

It's less about using another Apache project than about what the
volunteer labor force here wants to work with.

Speaking for myself I can't find any motivation to work on the Archiva
webapp that uses an old version of WebWork.  I'm not that interested
in Spring MVC.  I'm sure it's  fine framework, it's just not the
community I want to be involved in.  I would welcome the excuse to get
more involved at Struts again while working on a Struts 2.1 app
