          The significance of the vote on 12 March 2004 can not be 
          under-estimated, as the community has long struggled about identity 
          and divergence issues. We hope that this can put an end to identity 
          crisis and Avalon can forge ahead.

            Framework will evolve and embrace more component aspects than currently.
          </li>
          <li>
            Work will start on a formal Test Compatibility Kit, where the 
            Avalon componentm specification can be validated.
          </li>
          <li>
            Merlin will become the undisputed Reference Container, and the only
            fully supported Avalon container for the foreseeable future.
          </li>
          <li>
            MerlinDeveloper's status will be improved and rejuvenated effort will
            go into bringing it to a releasable state.
          </li>
          <li>
            Fortress will be put on halt for the time being, and it is uncertain
            if a revival effort will take place later, or if it will be forked
            elsewhere.
          </li>
          <li>
            Excalibur will be terminally deprecated, and only updated with
            bug fixes to support existing users.
          </li>
          <li>
            The official website and Wiki will be updated to reflect this fact,
            i.e. references to ECM and Fortress will be removed, and the
            documentation of these containers will be move to a historical
            section.
