I'm resending this message, originally sent on 24 June, because it
doesn't show up in either markmail or the Apache mail archive.
Apparently it went into the tuscany-dev "black hole".

I updated pages [1] and [2] to reflect the latest discussions on these topics.
Please note that the link posted above for [1] is wrong and should be
  [1] http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/TUSCANYWIKI/Basic+Modules-+Runtime+Bundles

I added a "Next steps" section to each of these pages.  I hope this will be
helpful in keeping the discussions moving forward, by identifying what needs
to be done next to make progress towards a consensus that we can implement.

Any comments are welcome, either on the contents of the Wiki pages or on the
approach being used to structure this discussion.
