Maybe we should do a new thread for the security stuff so we don't derail
this one.

Having talked to some of the Seam Contributors here at JBoss World / Red
Hat Summit it seems like a lot of them aren't quite sure how to get the
discussions started for their previous Seam modules, especially since many
of them target EE apis (I'm ccing the Seam dev list so hopefully those who
may not be following DeltaSpike dev will see this). That is a large part of
where this sandbox idea came from. If we want to create a new Apache repo,
or another sub directory in our current repo, or perhaps even different
branches for this work I'm fine. However, I do agree that getting too many
topics going all at once is bad. That happened in Seam and we were
overloaded. Perhaps we should create some sort policy for getting these
ideas in if they're not on the current roadmap. I'm not sure if any of
really know when we'll be tackling some of the EE stuff. Next release,
release after that one? I really don't want to lose these people and see
DeltaSpike stagnate with only a few developers doing it in their spare time.
