Ok what are we moving into felix common? And will not moving our stuff 
over to felix common not make it harder for others to commit on those

Rather than get with Richard (a person) we should be asking about how to 
start working the commons thing on the community's dev list.  Also if 
you're a main driver for doing things in there you can get commit rights 
which should be the case.

You already have rights to commit to the directory project which still 
for now includes MINA.  I recommend creating a private MINA branch in 
your personal sandbox area and making the appropriate changes there then 
presenting this idea to the MINA dev list.


This should be more proactive and they can see just what you are 
proposing first hand by investigating your branch.
