Well, I should've seen them too, and I did in fact, but completely
forgot about them. Perhaps, it's time to start doing after
everything's said ;-)

Do we need a full-blown web site (with Joomla behind)? Wouldn't a
maven-like structure be enough? Just to see how it goes and bring the
jpa plugin here (where its home is ;-))

That's why I asked about it again. Everybody's busy so only the
hottest features are able to survive, and the others need to be pushed
a little ;-)

I don't know if they need to have their own repo. Just thinking out
loud and thinking we could separate them in a 'plugins' subdirectory
of the Geronimo repo pretty well, too. If they get large they could
become a subproject or a tlp project, whatever. I think we need to
make a home for them before people will scratch their heads where they
could be developed.

What I'm leaning toward is a very unideal yet working solution with and plugins subdirectory in place.
If/when we decide something better we'll change it.
