I didn't mean "give them back to the Avalon PMC". As far as I can
understand, the Avalon PMC is dead and about to be dismantled.

I meant "put them back on avalon.apache.org. Because this is the
logical place, that people looking at an org.apache.avalon.* package
will search for them.

Why should the Excalibur PMC not run a second web site called
"avalon.apache.org"? Just for political reasons?

This is about outsiders and people that do not know anything about the
Arthurian wars coming to the project. This is about trust and faith in
the future of the avalon based components. If they flock around the
Excalibur PMC in the end, fine.
