Everyone has their own goals, needs and requirements. The e-mail that I 
sent that started this thread just about outlines the extent to which 
the goals, needs and requirements of the signees are known to overlap. 
So I can only answer your question from my own perspective, and not on 
behalf of everyone.

Whilst I share the goal of container interoperability (and 
interoperability in a much broader sense than just between 
avalon-supporting containers, in fact), I have only so much time and 
energy available to contribute towards that goal. That time and energy 
is currently directed elsewhere (for example, I've been at work today to 
get PicoContainer to be able to run avalon components). I do not have 
time nor energy left right now to also take part in the active 
development of the merlin platform.

So while I'm more than happy to continue my advisory role with regard to 
the merlin platform (answering questions and providing suggestions via 
e-mail, ICQ and IRC on phoenix, ECM, and fortress and otherwise sharing 
my expertise with regard to IoC and avalon container development), it's 
unlikely you'll see me contribute (substantial amounts) of code now or 
in the near future.

Again, this is only me talking. Other people will no doubt have a 
different answer.
