Subject Re: [PROPOSAL - OpenWebBeans Project Proposal]
Date Mon, 13 Oct 2008 06:00:27 GMT

First of all, there are lots of places that I could propose my project, but I think that open
source development with the Apache Way conveys the real Free and Professional Open Source
Project with meritrocracy in action. 

This code could be part of the Geronimo project as its Web Beans container, or could be the
top level project its own. I only know that there is only one effort to create RI, this is
the JBoss RI  (Pete Muir is responsible for implementing, Gavin King for creating the spec)
at the web side And its implementation is in the early

Indeed, Apache way implementation makes different from the others, because and most importantly
its developed based on the Apache Way and it also creates additions to the RI with creating
add-on components that are based on the other Apache projects, such as, OpenEJB, OpenJPA,
JSecurity, ActiveMQ etc, possible. Morevoer, It's always good to have multiple implementations
of a spec so enterprise community benefits from the different imlpementations, and they choose
the best (Like MyFaces and Sun JSF imeplemtnations.)

I am ready for doing lots of work to this project progresses. Moreover, I get some great response
from the below individuals to help this project succesfull,

- Kevan Miller : As a mentor and partly committer
- Conny Lundgren : JSR-299 EG member as a committer.

And also, I think the committer number is increased by the time.

As I said in the beginning, I believe that open source must be transparent, and the community
appreciates the heavy working to implement this spec within the Apache Foundation.

I have a number of questions before I can support the proposal:

Where do you expect this code / community to end up after the
incubator?  Will it be part of Geronimo?  Part of MySpaces?  It's own
TLP?  I can say now that if the project is to stand on its own, then
there's a lot of work to do.

It seems as though there are 2 or 3 other Apache licensed efforts in
creating a RI for JSR-299: Gavin King's work, JBoss's work and the
rumored Guice work.  What makes this RI effort any different?  Why
should the ASF support this project instead of one of the others?

I'm concerned that there's only one listed committer.  Getting to at
least 3 committers is going to have to be the first order of business
for this podling.
