Sorry, I don't know Gump well enough to know what profiles are.

Avalon as a Gump project doesn't exist, and should be removed.

Avalon Framework is what people probably mean, and is the foundation we will 
build on top of.

Avalon-Logging is replacing Excalibur Logging, and is the package that is used 
inside Avalon Merlin, the now decided Single Platform from Avalon.

Merlin will only depend on (sooner or later) avalon-framework, avalon-logging, 
avalon-meta, avalon-repository and various avalon-util, plus external stuff.

Excalibur is going to be terminated, once we have polished it up to a final 
nice state. I am planning (provided consenus can be reached) that commit 
rights will be removed after that has been reached, so if someone want to 
evolve it, they have to fork it to another place.

Fortress features that are desireable are going to be migrated to Merlin, and 
then Fortress will go the same path as Excalibur, but will take much longer.

Cornerstone is going to be migrated into a nice state, that means 
documentation, unittests and no dependencies on Excalibur. This will take 
quite a while.

I hope this clarifies the evolutionary path that I see happening over the next 
6 months or so.
