I think he is talking about having/needing a separate download for
ServiceMix irrespective of whether an incubating jar is in Geronimo or

Basically if one needs servicemix, they get a whole package that has
incubating all over it. Same with derby, if someone needed derby they
won't download Geronimo. They will download Derby. Does not mean that
derby jar should not be in Geronimo. It could be, but needs to be
marked properly (incubating sth or other in the jar name)

Anyway that is my understanding...
