well, the prefered status was/is being a MyFaces subproject

True, since MyFaces Core is "only" the API and its Impl. There are
some common useful services/API in ADF Faces, like
ExternalRenderKitService. Those things are not bound to a specific
RenderKit. The base stuff can also be used in Tobago; but this
discussion should happen on the MyFaces list, since we are to JSF
related right now ;-)

But, I am not happy with the status of MyFaces itself. I'd like to see
a generic "JavaServer Faces" TLP like WebServices or Portals. This
project - Apache Faces - should have serveral subprojects, like:

-MyFaces (what is yet known as MyFaces Core (API and its impl)
-Tomahawk (custom components)
-Tobago (layout-oriented JSF stuff)
-Sandbox (our sandbox)
-Shared ("common" services/api usefull for all of them)

Could be interesting for Struts Shale too.
