In previous discussions, the eventual status (subproject/project) of
the podling was not to be considered in decisions until after the
project graduated.    It seems like this would continue to be a good
policy since the folks most involved with the podling are the podling
committers, and they're the ones who should be getting the pmc
"internship".   Whether that set of podling individuals eventually
gets merged into another project or the poding goes top-level should
be irrelevent.   If the destination pmc members want to be involved in
the podling ppmc, then they should be explicitly involving themselves
in its development.   Some of the MyFaces members are doing this.
Some of us (myself included) aren't.   I don't see why those of us who
aren't explicitly involving ourselves should be making decisions for
the podling.   On top of that, down the road, it may turn out to be a
top-level project instead.   Struts/WW was a little different
situation since the immediate goal was to merge the two while
ADFFaces/MyFaces are two different JSF-related things.   Parts of
ADFFaces will likely (at this point) be merged into MyFaces Tomahawk,
but nothing in ADFFaces is likely to make it into the MyFaces core.
