Subject Re: CMS requirements project, how to do it?

Off the top of my head I would rather not see a project in this very
early stage of development be 'hosted' in an official way at
xml.apache.org, at least not unless a number of existing xml committers
were planning to devote resources to it immediately.

I think one of the strengths of apache is that we do try to manage
projects actively, and look for projects that have a strong existing
base of both developers (who become committers) and users.  The
pre-existing *community* is what makes the thing work, not the idea of
the project or it's code.

Of course new ideas are always welcome, and anyone can use the
general@xml or general@jakarta mailing lists to put them forth.  It
sounds like there'd be plenty of jakartaites who both would have plenty
of input for this topic, as well as plenty of existing jakarta projects
that are existing and *shipping* content management systems.  Cocoon
here at xml also sounds like a content management system.  So I'd
reccommend considering looking at the existing solutions that do have
projects and communities here at apache to see which ones you might
want to bring input to, rather than trying to start another one yet.

For more discussion, see the general@jakarta.apache.org list in the
past month or so where they've been talking about several meta-issues
about what makes a good apache project and the like.  One archive is
