Subject Re: Incubating java projects

James,

To be blunt, what is being done here? here's what i see as a casual
observer to the infra list.

- A bunch of projects are getting into Apache controlled by the same
set of people (ServiceMix/ActiveMQ/XBean/WADI)
- Folks are getting completely unrelated projects into an umbrella
project "Geronimo"
- Folks involved want everything under the sun to be supported by infra folks
- Folks dont want to use incubator.apache.org as the mailing list domain
- Folks dont want to even change their package name
- Folks just want to do what they want to do regardless of precedent

Where is this heading? I am afraid to ask.

thanks,
dims
