Serge:

Perhaps it could be argued that the following list positions James as a
visible user of dead, never released, unreproducible, redundant and
unsupported technology?  I couldn't say.  But I would like to know if
this is what you meant by the ASF establishment taking care of the James
community?

Dependency                          ASF Management Strategy

The above list is actually really interesting because it was a subject
at the center of the first "critical drama" between the Chair, members
of the board, and activate Avalon committers.  The active committer
community objected to the transfer of dead code from cvs to svn, arguing
that the Avalon svn should contain the active alive code.  Irrespective
of the validity of this opinion - members of the board actively
encouraged Aaron to ignore any PMC opinion and take an "executive"
decision.  In my mind (and I'm not alone) this was the start of a
fallout between the chair, certain members of the board, and members of
the Avalon development community.

Stephen.
