Maybe this wasn't clear, but JabberStudio is *not* a JSF activity.
JabberStudio just happens to run on the same machines as the JSF sites.
As has been said before, I believe you are welcome to help them make
JabberStudio better.

other location is right for their project. You don't like JS? Help them
out or go elsewhere. Jabber is distributed in nature, why would the
project/community sites not be?
