- People now come to the ASF for completed APIs and their implementations.  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 unseal 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.
