Both! We dont have, nor desire any control over all the additions you 
can find on the internet. Others have made forks of jini/river and added 
facilities to it. No problem with that. But the River community right 
now should care foremost about itself. When we have our house in order, 
then we can care about others. Right now we are working hard to make 
River a popular package, and try to reduce the tendency of others to fork.

I refuse to let our attempts at lowering the threshold be stifled by 
others who think we should leave this to them.
