There is no problem.  There is no reason at all for any one project
to "own" the CMS space at Apache.  It makes sense for Slide to replace
its back-end with Jackrabbit for one and only one reason: such an
architecture will enable substitutability of its back-end and simplify
Slide's implementation.  If that does not turn out to be the case,
then none of us would want Slide to use Jackrabbit and I see no
reason to badger them into doing so.  Likewise for Lenya, JCMS,
and whatever else may come next.

What we would like to see is all of the folks who think they might
need a JVM storage management interface to get involved in the
Jackrabbit project, try to use it to build useful things, tell us
all when problems are encountered (preferably right now, while the
JCR specification is still easy to change), and through that
interaction make Jackrabbit something more useful than just another
JSR interface.  That is a heck of a lot more useful than just waiting
to see what code the current project developers turn out.
