+1 for recognizing that EIPs are very important!  :)

-1 for the current implementation :(

For starters Jetspeed has been on the scene for a year already... 1.2 is
right around the corner.

I would rather the Ozone/Prowler team merge with the Jetspeed team.  We
are trying to do the same thing in certain ways.  This has already been
done with the pending iCalendar implementation, and PSML rework.

The other issue is the license.  We can't work with you in this
configuration... as Stefano pointed out.  Now there are three camps,
Jetspeed/Cocoon/Turbine, Proprietery solutions, and now Infozone :(

Honestly I would rather thing of it as Cocoon -> Jetspeed|Prowler.

The interesting thing is that I am not sure how much Prowler applies...
in an OSS world.  Content syndication is very rare right now.... except
XMLTree.  Jetspeed has support for this in the Daemon package.  There is
a prototype plugin content subscription architecture in Jetspeed but I
don't see the need.  But then I am probably wrong as usual :)

Yeah... a full blown app server has been pending for a while :)

Just a rant... I have seen a lot of corporate OSS interest in creating
their own OSS projects/groups.  They get venture, want to do open source
and then have venture.org as their project umbrella.  IMO it is a VERY
bad idea.  We are already here, have a strong community, and have been
doing this for a while.  :)
