This proposal seeks to create a project within the Apache Software
Foundation to continue the development and advancement of JSecurity 
technology. It has broad backing from the JSecurity Community. 

Thank you for your consideration.

'''JSecurity Proposal'''

''Proposal for new project JSecurity''


== (0) rationale ==


== (0.1) criteria ==

=== Meritocracy ===

The JSecurity project will be meritocractic. The project will follow the guidelines
( of the Apache
Software Foundation. In order to achieve this, we plan on proactively recruiting
individuals in the Community to get involved in the project: specifying work
that needs to be done, encouraging bug fixes, enhancements, and advancements,
and engaging in discussion on how the code works and is structured. In the end,
we are committed to creating an environment to foster a meritocracy.

=== Community ===


=== Core Developers ===


=== Alignment ===

JSecurity is aligned well with Apache in terms of technologies and licensing. It fits
in well technologically with other Apache projects, which also focus on
clustering, web frameworks, and Java technolgies.


== (0.2) warning signs ==

=== Orphaned products ===


=== Inexperience with open source ===

The initial committers have varying degrees of experience with open source
projects. All have been involved with source code that has been released under
an open source license, but there is limited experience developing code with an
open source development process. We do not, however, expect any difficulty in
executing under normal meritocracy rules.

=== Homogenous developers ===


=== Reliance on salaried developers ===


=== No ties to other Apache products ===

''Are there any?''

There are potential future ties (http server, database backend, etc)
that will be explored.

=== A fascination with the Apache brand ===


== (1) scope of the project ==

The scope of the JSecurity project would be the continued development of JSecurity
technology core infrastructure software, including the related utilities and tools.
The development would include adding new features and improving performance, scalability,
quality, and

== (2) identify the initial source from which the project is to be populated ==

The initial resources would be garnered from:

    * jsec-ppmc (with moderated subscriptions)
    * jsec-dev
    * jsec-commits
    * jsec-user

=== (3.2) Subversion or CVS repositories ===

JSecurity would like to use a Subversion repository.

=== (3.3) Jira (issue tracking) ===

Since JSecurity would have its own release cycle, it should have its own JIRA project
