There's nothing "urgent" in terms of the process. The urgency is in  
avoidance of stopping forward progress by the entire team waiting for  
Janne to finish JCR.

While the incubator wants to see projects flourish and graduate,  
there's no artificial time line.

I think Janne has identified the major issues as being architecture  
around the interdependency between the chicken and the egg (hope I got  
this right).

So from my perspective, everyone is agreed that JCR is an important  
part of the project. 3.0.0 doesn't work right now. 3.0.0 with JCR  
won't work either. Other team members might be able to contribute to  
the thinking around how to make 3.0.0 work with JCR.

Not to jump too far forward, but perhaps merging JCR to trunk and  
renaming the packages now is the right thing to do?
