jib review / 20100526:
 * It was my understanding from UDS that'd we'd focus on Hibernate with a Tomcat stack, not glassfish
   or JBOSS - are all those dependencies still necessary in that case?
   * This spec is all about moving Hibernate to main. Unfortunately that means MIRing JBoss and Glassfish, unless someone that knows those stacks by heart can cut some unnecessary dependencies (but I'd be surprised) --ttx
 * Complexitiy is hard for me to judge as I don't know the state of the packages. Guidance appreciated.
  * Based on past experience (Eucalyptus in main), I'd say complexity=7 --ttx
  * This is a perfect spec for a Javahire in mentoring. It makes you look into Java packaging for lots of different style of packages, with an eye into making them policy-compliant, clean, and testsuite-enabled. His Java expertise would make him question certain dependencies, potentially resulting in a cut in the number of MIRs. Given complexity, I wouldn't pursue this without that person -- ttx
 * Suggested Subcycle: Alpha3 for the MIRs
