I just  wanted to jump in there. We've already got a large and  
diverse group of commiters in ServiceMix and we are very open to new  
contributions; our arms are wide open - we are not excluding people.  
I don't think there is any difference in easy or exclusion in any of  
the options you propose to folks wishing to join in and contribute.
