Did you know that five of the committers originated from the OpenEJB
project? This includes both project founders, Richard Monson-Haefel
and myself. Did you know the founders of Jetty are also founding
members of this project? The leader of Mx4j also. Castor
JDO. The list goes on and on.
Why should any of us have to justify our existence now, after having
played in the open source J2EE world for as long as JBoss? Why is
it that when Apache opens their doors to us and provides a place where we
can finally collaborate, people call "foul" as if collaboration
is a dirty word in open source?
Exactly what is the injustice here and exactly when did our years of work
suddenly become about JBoss?
