Agree with Steven on the mailing list, disagree on the cvs module.  I think
these things should be case by case.  Tapestry, for instance, had a lot less
issues of its own than XMLBeans and Apache had a lot more issues surrounding
the incubator creation therefore we created the CVS module...  In the
XMLBeans case, there are a lot more community issues and a lot less Apache
issues, therefore a cvs dir makes more sense.

Aggregating everything on one big fat mailing list  always turns out to be a
huge pain.  Its much easier to organize one's mail based on mail list than
any voluntary [tag] system.
