Hi Mark-

Thanks for getting this discussion going.

We did have to touch on this in our project proposal (see:
<http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/RiverProposal>, "(2) identify
the initial source from with the project is to be populated". We
had identified the Starter Kit (and link to the latest published
version). Although we did not explicitly state v2.1, it was certainly
meant to be implied that it would be the latest published version.

We also identified ServiceUI and a link to the latest published
version (v1.1a).

Finally, we identified the QATests project, which contained the
tests and harness we used for testing releases of the Starter Kit.

Bill - if you have any substantive issues (logged, or just scribbled
on a notepad), I agree that it would be good to seed the incubator
project JIRA with them.

I'm not sure of the logistics for getting issues moved from our
internal system to JIRA, but it's something we'll need to look
at relatively soon. We certainly want and expect to get the major
issues we have logged moved over.

We're definitely in sync on this one.

There have been various, mixed, and interesting discussions on
what should or should not be included from the Starter Kit. To my
mind there were never any conclusions (or consensus) reached and
our plan was to move over the Starter Kit (sans 3rd party code - only
the installer as far as I know) and have the discussion as part of
incubating at Apache.
