Agreed. github has great tools as well; plus its got the lowest
barrier to entry which encourages participation.

It could move to Apache one day. I'm much more keen though to get
folks contributing and writing plugins - those plugins could live at
github, eclipse, inside their respective Apache projects or in a new
Apache UI project or whatever. Though actually having the UI console
in a separate project kinda helps (e.g. hawtio works with all versions
of Camel).

Everything's Apache licensed so any project can reuse / embed / extend
hawtio wherever folks wish; plus folks can create their own stand
alone consoles in any project - or just write and release their own
plugins from any project anywhere.
