So you mean, when a sandbox analysis component is ready to use instead 
of adding it to the core framework we will add it to the "Apache UIMA 
components" project.
That's also fine with me. Though the sandbox in this case is only a 
temporary space and nothing that ever create any binary distributed 
component, right? In that case we also do not
need to add the sandbox to any release since if a sandbox component "is 
ready" we vote and add it to the core framework of to the components 
subproject. That is a kind of redefinition
of the current sandbox.
