Hi Carlos,

MINA was in an interesting situation where we had to make a serious 
judgment call.

MINA is about to bud off from the Directory TLP and become it's own TLP. 
  Everything has been prepared and a resolution is before the board. 
The probability of TLP formation is extremely high with several board 
members actually wondering why MINA is still part of Directory.

The problem was that we were about to release MINA 1.0 and did not want 
to have to yank users around with a groupId change after 1.0 especially 
since it's emergence as a TLP was weeks away.  We all wanted MINA 1.0.x 
to be stable in every aspect including the group ID it was using. 
Changing the groupId on say a 1.0.1 release would have sent the wrong 
message to MINA users.

So we weighed all the options and the directory PMC decided to release 
MINA 1.0.0 with org.apache.mina groupId to spare users.  Now ApacheDS 
1.0.0 is waiting on the jars of MINA to get to ibiblio with a completely 
broken build.

I know this is a bit of an odd situation but we're in a bind here and 
would appreciate it if you can consider this a very special case.

Thanks much,
