Not sure I follow, but let me try to summarize the proposals as concisely
as I can.

The core consists of:

oai.core:isis-core                                    # the metamodel, plus
defining the main runtime APIs
oai.core:isis-cglib-bytecode                 # first of the two impls of
bytecode API, for use by objectstores
oai.core:isis-javassist-bytecode         # second of the two impls of
bytecode API, for use by objectstores
oai.core:isis-runtime                             # the default runtime impl
oai.core:isis-unittestsupport                # used by other core modules,
with scope=test
oai.core:isis-integtestsupport             # for use by tck and end-users,
with scope=test
oai.core:isis-webserver                        # for use by end-users in a
dev env

(As Jeroen identified them), the runtime components are : isis-core,
isis-runtime, isis-xxx-bytecode, the remainder are for use in the
development environment.

The above assumes that we don't bundle any default components for the
objectstore, security or viewer APIs.

For the components outside the core are separately releasable (their parent
is org.apache:apache).  In most cases these components will have
submodules.  The components are:



oia.objectstore:isis-xml-profilestore                 # not released in the
first event
oia.objectstore:isis-sql-profilestore                 # not released in the
first event              # previously called 'dflt'                 # not released in the first
event                 # not released in the first

To be retired:
* oia.viewer:isis-html-viewer
* oia.core:isis-monitoring

Finally, there will be archetypes:


According to the reseach that Jeroen did, it seems feasible that we can
arrange the above into pretty much any directory structure we want.  For

core/deployment/        # subdirs for: core, runtime, xxx-bytecode
core/development       # subdirs for: xxxtestsupport, webserver

components/viewers/     # subdirs for dnd, restful, scimpi, wicket,
components/objectstores/   # subdirs for inmemory, jdo, nosql, sql, xml
components/profilestores/   # subdirs for inmemory, xml, sql
components/security/   # subdirs for noop, ldap, sql

archetypes/   # subdirs for each

Hope that helps pull everything together
