Subject Re: Consolidating the community

Huge +1!

I can't speak for the rest of the ActiveMQ community, but I've  
chatted with James Strachan in the past before this, and we think it  
would be a huge win for both the Apache and ActiveMQ communities if  
ActiveMQ came to Apache.  There's also a few dependencies that  
ActiveMQ uses that are maintained mostly by the committers ActiveMQ  
community like ActiveIO, ActiveCluster, ActivetSpaces, etc.  It would  
be nice to keep all these projects together., I wonder if the Apache/ 
Geronimo community would be interested in bring all this stuff in house?

Unfortunately, James (the founder of most of the above projects) is  
out on vacation this week, but I sure He'd be all for it if Apache/ 
Geronimo was interested.  This idea is also very exciting for me!  It  
would show the solidification and maturing of the geronimo project.
