I know that you mentioned commons umbrella just 'for example', but I'd like
to talk about the vision of MINA project a little bit here.

MINA is just a network application framework for now, but I don't think it
will be forever. My aim is to make MINA a full featured network application
platform which features:

* Visual protocol designer based on various encodings such as ASN.1
* Unified administrative view based on JMX and web that all MINA application
will get administrative benifit from
* High-performance server implementations (both standalone and embedded) for
popular protocols based on MINA
** DNS
** NTP
* Integration with existing communication technologies:

So going under commons umbrella is like moving to another Directory project
IMHO because MINA won't fit well with commons eventually.

Fact is that as of now, Trustin is to MINA what Brett is to Maven

But it would be better I think to have MINA mail traffic outside Directory.

You're right, and I already mentioned about our community plan here:

what we call human nature is actually human habit
