Please, tell me: why are you becoming defensive?

My question was: why can't we agree on working toward *ONE* 
implementation of the framework that fits everybody's needs (like we do 
in Cocoon)?

And the end of your reply was the above sentence.

Let me be brutally honest with you: the perception I get from Avalon is 
that it has become a 'visibility contest'.

There is *NOTHING* technical into that. I'm worried, the projects that 
depend on avalon are worried, the ASF board is worried.

Can we please start doing something for this?

There is one framework, there should be one implementation in-house and 
as many as you like outside this community. I'm fine with this.

So, let's start from the functionalities that all container users want 
and let's build a community from that. Code will come. Code will be 
reused from what avalon already produced. What will be thrown away 
hopefully is the "I'll do my own thing since we can't reach consensus" 

So, ask my simple question: would you (Berin and each one of you) like 
to work on a single avalon container that serves all of your needs?

I'm not saying it's easy, I'm saying that it's the only way I see we can 
resume the health of this community.
