We're talking about creating a new umbrella project focusing on Web services
that initially will host three different SOAP projects: soap, axis, and
wasp. From earlier comments on this thread, I infer that there's a push to
get the axis community to gather around Web services, not just around the
axis code base. If the umbrella project name is axis, then the sub-project
ought to have a different name -- otherwise the axis sub-project would be
viewed as the "real" project, and the others as something less. If the axis
sub-project doesn't want to change it's project name, then the overarching
umbrella project should have a different name.

Good point, although ebXML reg/rep wouldn't involve code merging -- its a
registry/repository, not a SOAP implementation. It would be a separate code
base.
