Finally, as a comment I would say that the more implementation we have
(Open Source or not) the faster the specification will be adopted.
Competition is always good if it is a fair one and in that case it is the
case (I wish all our competitors were as nice guys as David Nuescheler
(Spec Lead, Day Software, Inc.) is.

Good point, though. I just hope the repositories will be compatible.

We are using Magnolia as a CMS on top of Jackrabbit, and in principle, we
should be able to interchange between eXo's implementation and Jackrabbit
without problems. Not that I seriously believe that will be possible, but
I hope all implementors will be strict in following the spec, less it
won't be adopted by the rest of the community due to implementation
