Reading the happenings on jboss-dev and jboss-user, I personally understand
now that it is hard to handle JBoss in that way. I still believe, however,
that there may also be others sharing my initial feelings. Thus I would
suggest to drop a note somewhere. In particular the immediate removal of
CVS access for the Jetty developers is worth noting.

I am happy to say that Brian Behlendorf's reply to Marc Fleury is
definitely what I wished here. I suggest to add this to the FAQ,
at least the words on "we are still open".
