Re: [VOTE] Move ahead with creating a reusable JWT module

Just to make sure I understand.  a +1 on this to me means there may be a module created in geronimo.  Maybe not.  But either way it shouldn't stop what TomEE is doing.

My vote would be -0 and I hesitate even for a negative anything.

I think the "Geronimo will do it anyway, collaborate or not" perspective feels a bit like an ultimatum.  That said, if people truly do want to move on regardless of what happens in TomEE, that's exactly what should happen.

I feel strongly that a project should not be obstructed by other projects who feel ownership over an domain, be forced to collaborate, or otherwise be stopped in their tracks.

Here's how I'd like my vote read:

 - Waiting to see what TomEE decides or creates would be ideal in my mind, but not necessary if there is support for moving forward

 - I wouldn't help, but I wouldn't stand in the way

 - I continue to have reservations naming reusable components after a dead app server.  I managed to have all my best efforts remain perfectly invisible under the name "OpenEJB" and "EJB."  If people want to put effort into reforming the 15 year-old Geronimo brand, they are welcome to do so, but I can't sign up for that again.  I can't pretend this isn't a significant obstacle.

 - I continue to feel we'd be stronger together (TomEE and Geronimo).  With these false lines making everyone have to get commit twice and hiding our best work under a dead website and brand, we aren't getting the strength and speed we need.

As long as I feel understood, not pushed into doing something I don't want to do, I'm more than happy.
