No way. *shrug*.

And the amount of publicly archived discussion about it or
what the **** is precisely going on or anything like that is
also shockingly missing.

Personally and as an ASF member, I think its not a good idea
to have a CORBA implementation under the wings of the geronimo
project (Re: "umbrella projects bad" threads from long ago).

As an incubator PMC member, I don't think the incubator should
be telling the geronimo project that they shouldn't have a
CORBA implementation. As I see it, that's a responsibility for
the geronimo PMC (which obviously seems to disagree), its chair
(eg, you), the ASF board, and ultimately the membership. I think
both you and the ASF board are well aware of what is going on
within the geronimo project and I trust that things will work
out one way or another in the end.

Secondly, as an incubator PMC member, I think the geronimo project
is not fulfilling its part of the incubation process and not
communicating enough at all and its making me very grumpy.

I wrote a rather generic message tot dev@geronimo and
general@incubator about this stuff recently. This is just
another example. The only further action I'll be taking with
regard to this mess is ignoring it until it goes away.
