Exactly... It seems to me that the JSF should not _BE_ the community, it should
_LEAD_ the community.

Everyone who writes an apache module isn't a member of the Apache Software
Foundation. I think moving the JSF towards a more leadership and driving role
would be good for the community and help spure growth. Folks who want to just
"innovate" don't have to be tied down with the responsibilities of being a JSF
member.
