I agree with Brett that a TLP might be a bit premature. If going out it 
would be fine to me under the commons umbrella for example.

Fact is that as of now, Trustin is to MINA what Brett is to Maven 
(without the situation to be really comparable due to past history), but 
to me this is the same, it is clear that without them, their respective 
project will fall to a more than noticeable halt and users will be left 
in the dark for some time until someone steps up.

But it would be better I think to have MINA mail traffic outside Directory.
And it's a first step for the project as well.
