Some basic project management rules need to be applied.

Simply put, we will have a core conceptual team that takes decisions and 
an executing group around it.

This splitting doesn't mean that people from the one group can't be in 
the other group and vice versa.

Of course everyone can rise questions and have objections, but, however, 
decisions are taken by the core team ( so called representative 
democracy ).

We need to have some project angels, one or two concepters, four or five 
graphics, four or five html coders, roughly ten developers, a build 
manager, a cvs repository manager, one or two project managers and then 
i think, we can bring that baby to live.

But ! This includes real serious backening by all the parts of the JSF, 
including the iteam. I have had requested the subdomain for the software 
map several times and nothing happened. All parts must function 
harmonized and perfect.


That's what i think on this.


Best regards,
Ulrich
