-                    Releasing all of this code together has been like hanging wall
-                    paper. We smooth a crease here, and another wrinkle crops up over
-                    there. In order to promote lighter, regular releases, we've
-                    subdivided the monolithic Struts 1.2 distribution into seven
-                    distinct subprojects: Action, EL, Extras, Site, Taglib, and
-                    Tiles.
+                    First, it's important to remember that Apache Struts is an
+                    all-volunteer project.
+                    We don't charge anyone anything to use Apache Struts
+                    products.
+                    Committers and other developers work on Apache Struts
+                    products because they need to use it with their own
+                    applications.
+                    If others can use it too, that's "icing on the cake".
+                    If you
+                    <a href="../helping.html">submit a patch</a>
+                    for a feature that a Committer finds useful, then that
+                    Committer may choose to volunteer his or her time to apply
+                    the patch.
+                    If you just submit an idea without a patch, it is much
+                    less likely to be added (since first someone else has to
+                    volunteer their time to write the patch).

+                    We are grateful for any patches, and we welcome new ideas,
+                    but the best way to see that something gets added to the
+                    framework is to do as much of the work as you can, rather
+                    than rely on the "kindness of strangers". Worst case, you
+                    can apply the patch to your copy of Struts and still use
+                    the feature in your own application. (Which is what open
+                    source is ~really~ all about.)

-                    Of course, the next question is: "Which versions work with the
-                    best available release of Action?" To answer that question,
-                    we provide the Struts Action Library, which contains the set of
-                    JARs that work with the "best available" release of Action 1.3.

+                    <p>
+                        Hmmm, almost. This sort of thing already happens with the Commons
+                        components. We might have to release a new version of Commons
+                        Validator and test it against the development build of Struts
+                        Action. The same thing would continue to happen. It's just
+                        instead of
+                        being a Commons component and a Struts component, it's two
+                        Struts components. No big woof.

+                        The difference is that now we get to choose what is released
+                        together. The infrastructure does not make that decision for us.

-            <answer>
-                <p>
-                    First, it's important to remember that Apache Struts is an
-                    all-volunteer project.
-                    We don't charge anyone anything to use Apache Struts
-                    products.
-                    Committers and other developers work on Apache Struts
-                    products because they need to use it with their own
-                    applications.
-                    If others can use it too, that's "icing on the cake".
-                    If you
-                    <a href="../helping.html">submit a patch</a>
-                    for a feature that a Committer finds useful, then that
-                    Committer may choose to volunteer his or her time to apply
-                    the patch.
-                    If you just submit an idea without a patch, it is much
-                    less likely to be added (since first someone else has to
-                    volunteer their time to write the patch).
-                </p>
-                <p>
-                    We are grateful for any patches, and we welcome new ideas,
-                    but the best way to see that something gets added to the
-                    framework is to do as much of the work as you can, rather
-                    than rely on the "kindness of strangers". Worst case, you
-                    can apply the patch to your copy of Struts and still use
-                    the feature in your own application. (Which is what open
-                    source is ~really~ all about.)
