Gump has a clearly defined model to deal with repositories, modules, 
projects, etc.

Forrest and Centipede are using it.

Maven, which had started on the Alexandria-Gump project, forked to the 
Turbine community and made its own, calling it POM (which sounds like 
"apple" to me when I read it, or another thing that I prefer not to say 
when read in an Italian dialect).

Now, Gump needs a name for his model, because many think that it doesn't 
really have one, because Maven gave a unique name to his, and Gump didn't.
Overmore, we now need a simple way of accessing it via ant embed input 
modules, and abstract from the xml definition.

So the Viprom (*Virtual* Object Model) has been defined, and there is an 
initial project structure for it under the Alexandria CVS.
It makes it possible to access it via JXPath.

Mode detailed info over here:
