Perhaps, but if so, not by much (I didn't say IMO, because I think that this
whole discussion is one of personal opinion).  And I am not anti-Jakarta.
It just seems encumbered by size.

Cause or effect?  :-)

Agreed.  Other candidates that have been suggested by one person or another
include:

   Turbine
   Velocity
   Lucene (or to db.apache.org?)
   Struts

separately or in some semantically related combination.  Lucene, for
example, doesn't get nearly the "mindshare" that it ought.

I don't doubt it, and the proof ought to be in the ones that have already
done so.  I do ask if the PMC doing anything to help encourage other
projects to matriculate?  I must stress that is a question, not a backhanded
comment.  I really have no idea.
