It sure does look like it is worth a try. It also looks like it may require some configuration
within Kenai to get the export. If someone wants to get a proper export from Kenai's Media
Wiki admins (or the proper access to run UWC).

I think we need to start with a single representative project and then work out the details
for that before we do everything.

It is also worth noting that the UWC is AL2.0 licensed and can be modified.

I'll discuss the UWC with Apache Infrastructure.
