I admit that I'm a silent lurker here and I have no real position on
the whole discussion but I have a small question about this code move:

- If the Framework and non-Merlin code moves to Excalibur

and 

- Merlin either moves into Incubation (unlikely given the tension showing
  here) or off-ASF (which IMHO will happen at some point)

==> What is left in Avalon after this? Is it just an empty hull that will be
    disbanded?

Or will stuff like Framework moved back to Avalon, once one of the
clashing groups have left? If yes, what is the point in moving stuff
to Excalibur?

I always thought of Avalon being a fundamental building block of other
projects. Having the foundations being out of the hands of any project
building on it (being it Excalibur _or_ Merlin) would IMHO help the
stability of the whole Avalon thing.

	Regards
