Subject Re: WSS4J 2.0(?)

I'm also +1 on this move - it makes things modular and easy to handle.
BTW I don't think you need to move the integration tests - they are
*Axis2* integration tests and they should not go to any other project!
 Of course the rampart module will be external after the change but
that does not mean that the integration tests have to be too :)
I would also like to draw your attention to the structure of the
projects as well. If you look at the current project structure almost
all the projects that are under the ws project space are mostly
independent of each other [1]. For example WSS4J,Woden (which is
really incubated) and other tit bits in ws-commons. It is true that
there are projects that are explicitly focused on adding support to
other projects (like Kandula and Sandesha) but what I feel is that
since Savan and rampart are going to be very Axis2 specific, they
would not fit as immediate children of the ws project space. To me it
makes good sense to have a sub project called Axis2-modules (whatever
the name you guys prefer. I don't want it to be another naming war :))
and have savan and rampart under that - just like what we have in
ws-commons right now.

do I make any sense ?
