As I said in the other email and here below as well, my preference was 
that each project was its own project as far as magnolia was concerned. 
  The issue there is the domain name to an extent.

Think of it in terms of the author UI:

Or in terms of urls:

The idea being that each is its own project and can define its own 
license(s), jsr(s), product support, downloads, docs, jira, etc.

Then we just "bind" them visually via LnF.

The Clearspace/Collab site is where we do community stuff.

Anyway that was my opinion.  I have recently been told by some ass that 
I cannot design a website though so take it for what its worth :)
