  ''Homogenous developers:''
  
- From scratch the project will start with six developers of one company and two additional
developers from other companies. We hope to attract more individual developers soon, so as
to reduce the reliance on "Atanion". The Tiobago developers do fully understand and agree
that all coding decisions must be be made through the public mailing list, and *not* behind
closed doors.

  ''Reliance on salaried developers:''
  
- Tobago was developed both on salaried time and on volunteer time, after hours. While there
has been some reliance on salaried develpers, the MyFaces community is quite active and should
quickly dilute any reliance on Antanion develoipers. In the meantime, Atanion will support
the project in the future by dedicating 'work time' to Tobago, so that there is a smooth transition.

  ''No ties to other Apache products:''
  
- Tobago makes extensive use of serveral components from the Jakarta Commons. Tobago has been
developed for the Tomcat JSP/Servlet container, but runs also on most other containers. Tobago
is a great fit with MyFaces.

  ''A fascination with the Apache brand:''
  
- We respect and admire the work done by the Apache Software Foundation. Various open source
projects of the foundation have saved Antion a great deal of money, and its developers a great
deal of time. We want to give something back to the community and become a part of it.
