Subject Re: eBay Case Study and Synapse

Awesome news and great achievements, I also went through [1]. Kudos
should go to all the contributors and WSO2 for convincing eBay to switch
to ESB (a.k.a Synapse).

I believe I can freely talk here since I do not consider myself as a
Synapse contributor. However, since I was there since the inception of
the project I witnessed the contributions from many different
individuals. IIRC Synapse is composed of many different Apache projects,
so I do not see the point of crediting only one project (of course
credit should go to NIO too). More importantly, when there are (were)
many contributors of the project, it is not good for health of the
project just to mention very few individuals.
