It's not forced. Repo is just *one* implementation of the spec.

Ruper and Greebo have decided to work together on it.
*If* other developers and codebases want to join, they are free to do so.

To be clear:
*If* Wagon developers decide that they'd like to partecipate, as Jason 
vaugly hinted, thay are free to do so.
*If* Wagon developers don't want to partecipate, they are equally free 
to do so.

*If* Maven wants to adopt Repo at some point, Maven is free to do so.
*If* Maven doesn't want to adopt Repo at some point, Maven is equally 
free to do so.

I hope this is clear enough now.

I personally don't particularly like or even understand this 
unwillingness to cooperate without even a preliminary discussion or 
tentative, but this is *my* *personal* opinion, and it's widely known.

This has the *same* thing that has come out about Centipede VS Maven, 
but I won't be fooled this time into miscommunication ;-)

Last time it happened things went badly wrong, and I *don't* want it 
happen again. Hence I want to be clear, that there is *nothing* 
*compulsory* about this.
