(Except for a few minor and irrelevant aspects) I do not think the
Apache Way is blocking us from moving forward . It's the inner details
of the current architecture (Gary, the other founders of the project
and the newer contributors might have a relatively good idea of what I
am talking about) that did not allow us to move forward beyond a
certain point . The most evident proof of this is that the public
issue tracker at b.a.o is not running yet the latest multi-product
architecture .

I do believe in moving forward with the project following the Apache
Way , even if I keep developing my own private fork for other reasons
. I already sketched a roadmap in my previous message . The first step
to get out of this situation , IMO , should be to start working on a
new BEP for a new architecture built on top of BEP-0003 but , at the
same time , fixing the problems blocking us from achieving stable
