- People now come to the ASF for completed APIs and their implmentations.  There are cases
where multiple projects need to use the same API.  There are also cases where outside project
wish to use a completed ASF API.  In the former case, it is not unsual to find two instances
of a completed API.  This can cause confusing internally as synergies between projects grow
and as outside projects and developers are forced to go on an Easter egg hunt for the API.

  This proposal claims that a TLP is the best home for all completed APIs.  It removes redundant
instances of completed APIs.  It removes project specific names on spec jars, e.g. geronimo-servlet_2.4_spec.
 It makes it easier for the wider community to find and use completed APIs.

 All designated commiters will have access to Grand Central's entire Subversion repository;

  Since the ASF uses a single Subversion repository it should be simple enough to move the
APIs while keeping their provenance.  The project and the pantheon of APIs will be built using
Maven 2.
