Those are options we can explore in the future; for now the ActiveMQ  
and ServiceMix teams are more than happy with Geronimo as the  
sponsoring PMC.

I disagree. ActiveMQ is a core piece of Geronimo and one of the core  
dependencies of ServiceMix; ServiceMix also makes heavy use of XBean  
and other Geronimo features (JTA, JCA) together with being integrated  
into Geronimo. So apart from community overlap there is currently a  
greater technical dependency between ServiceMix and Geronimo than  
ServiceMIx and WS. Though that doesn't mean ServiceMix will not work  
with other WS projects - e.g. we're already using Axis in ServiceMix.  
I'm sure there will be some Tuscany <-> ServiceMIx collaboration soon  
and I'm interested in seeing a Synapse <-> ServiceMix bridge of some  
kind as well.

Sure - we know - you've said this before and it'll happen. I don't  
think the sponsor PMC or whether or not ServiceMix is a TLP or part  
of Geronimo or WS is gonna change that too much.

See - already moving ServiceMix to Apache has led to some new  
collaboration that might not have happened otherwise :)

I thought you just said you wanted ServiceMix to move to WS :)

Dims could you please give us a bit of time to get ServiceMix's house  
in order first before we can start collaborating with other projects  
in earnest. Don't worry there will be collaboration.
