Subject Re: [vote] XBean donation

Just to tie this up so it won't be left hanging - since Dain has already 
started moving forward with the ip document in incubator and declared 
his intention to commit the code tomorrow ...

My point was that this should have been presented before the vote on the 
dev list ("So here's why I want to bring XBean to Geronimo and why it's 
appropriate for Geronimo"), rather than it be assumed that everyone is 
familiar with whatever off-list or historical conversations have taken 
place around this.

I'm not against this - I was the one trying to get Dain to bring it back 
to Geronimo last summer when he first took it to Codehaus - but I think 
that the motivations for bringing in  code that is out of main scope of 
the project deserves some illumination.
