Nexus/Archiva one still also falls into the GPL vs Permissive camp
though. A better one is Proprietary Sun Java vs Harmony.

Generally the answer on 'internal' tools, is that volunteer and merit
is more important than product dogfooding (why wasn't an Archiva set
up?). On 'external' products (i.e. why doesn't Tomcat ship with
Harmony), we recognize that decoupling and independence are both
architecturally valuable and helps us socially (Tomcat don't have to
wait on Harmony to release).

Cobertura vs Clover exposes, I think, a 3rd axis. Pragmatism. Clover
was definitely the better product when I looked many years back, I
suspect it still is. Also a 4th: Choice. No reason why both can't be
used.
