I am not sure if my earlier mail made it to the list, I really want to see a 
different view of the URI

It seems like we are inclining towards the already existing "Maven" kind of 
URI. It has already proven its existence, instead of repeating the same 
thing, may be we should try to find a better one. How to make it more user 
friendly, better than what we have.

As I stated earlier, most of the project names don't say what they are 
trying to solve, and there are a lot of different projects that try to solve 
almost the same problem like xerces, crimson... (we could have lot of legacy 
projects with new ones coming in, but they all aim to solve one specific 
thing)  why not group them all together, make it easy for the user to go to 
one place and decide on what they want. And the user need not know the 
project per say and all they need to know is what they want to solve.
