Based on the way you said it, you are not correct.  Yes, if its in the
Geronimo repo, its community matter.  But as you state, if its open to
be "modified by anyone', without discussion for what people want/are
altering, then it becomes a mess, and things get out of control very
quickly. As long as the community is involved in discussing changes,
then everyone is warm and welcome to be a part of making changes. This
is no different that working on trunk.  We all need to talk about and
agree on what we want to work on, what we will work on, and what we will
change...and then it all works.
