The point is, its a cross project thing; getting together folks from
ActiveMQ, OpenEJB, WADI and Geronimo; so these kinds of code
consolidation discussions are probably best on Geronimo. e.g. there's
no point talking about OpenEJB on ActiveMQ's list.

OpenEJB still isn't here yet; I'm not sure if the incuabtion of WADI
is quite ready either.

Its more we've got some cross-project consolidation thats needed. e.g.
see the distributed session state discussions on geronimo; which
affect Jetty, Tomcat, WADI, OpenEJB, ServiceMix. IO is a similar cross
cutting concern.

Yes; slip of the tongue :)

Its more that the Geronimo list is the best place to have these
wide-ranging cross-project discussions; given that we're all faced
with similar concerns and all ultimately integrate into the same

As I said; once all the code is at apache, we can discuss at length on
Geronimo lists, where folks from WADI, OpenEBJ, Jetty, Tomcat,
ActiveMQ & ServiceMix hang out; we should invite the MINA folks to the
party too - then lets see where it goes from there.
