Here's my list:


  * Easier for other projects to reuse GShell
  * Release cycle not tied to Geronimo server release cycle


  * Small overhead for being a separately released project --  
documentation, release voting, etc
  * Separate source tree can complicate debugging (can make the  
counterpoint that debugging GShell is easier...)

The Geronimo tx-manager components (transaction and connector) is  
another example where we've done this. Note that prior to (or  
concurrent with) voting on our last two releases, we've been voting  
on a tx-manager release. Although it need not be that way, we're  
falling into a lock-step release cycle...

I assume that Guillaume is interested in using GShell outside of  
Geronimo. I assume that there will be others...

I'd support GShell as a subproject...
