I'm really sorry I haven't been active in these threads.  I've seen the
messages pop up in my email clients, but just haven't had the time to get
to them.

I agree with Niclas that it appears there is support for transfer and
collaboration within the Avalon community.  My only real concern is making
sure we all have a better understanding of each others goals and what
Depot is all about.

For example, what I personally would like to see is a TLP that is charged
with maintaining the ASF repository and also provides a collection of
tools for managing such repositories.  This would include things like
Depot as well as Avalon Repository (classloader creation) and perhaps some
future swing or webapp Repository Browser.

Reading the short description of Depot on the main website leads me to
believe my vision of a repository-centric TLP is in line with Depot's
mission.  However, after reading a few emails I'm left with the impression
that perhaps this is outside the scope of the project.

In the end, I would like to see the collaboration but I also want and need
a better idea of what Depot is shooting at.
