This is going to be short, both because I'm on a deadline and because
I think the important points have already been covered.

I'm not in favor of distributing Shale as a library behind a Struts 2
that promotes the Action 2 controller.  Shale's story from the
beginning has been that it is based on JSF.

Where is lives is less of a concern, but I'd be happy either as a TLP
or as part of MyFaces.      I'm very glad that Shale was accepted here
and given time to grow and develop a community, but I think it's time
to find a new home.  I'd like to see Struts (the project) return to a
focus on building a great Action framework, and let Shale continue to
explore what can be done with JSF.
