[security-dev] Moving DeltaSpike security to PicketLink

Hmm… What is the benefit over just starting working on 2.x in current picketlink-idm master and leave previous branches? I think you still have two issues:

- A lot of artefacts released to maven repo. You will need to define different artefact names to avoid collisions but then it will still be very difficult to avoid confusion. People already have a problem with understanding that "PicketLink" is an umbrella project and very often refer to either "PicketLink Federation" or "PicketLink IDM" as just "PicketLink. If they now find both "org.picketlink.idm:picketlink-idm-api" and "org.picketlink.idm:api: or org:picketlink.idm:api jars with same version it will create confusion. Then if we start from 2.x version - I'm not sure what does it bring to rename old repo to legacy in such scenario. you just get rid of few old branches and tags.  Btw. I branched what need to be branched so picketlink-idm master is ready to be nuked. 

- You would need to do the same with JIRA or you need to deal with same problem. Because PicketLink IDM was only really consumed by GateIn JIRA is a bit left behind - so quite easy to cleanup.

Could you write more how would you deal with those as part of repo renaming? 

Btw. I'm still holding the official "PicketLink IDM Component Lead". Because of my GateIn/EPP duties I don't think I will be able to spent as much time as Shane on development - even though me and Marek Posolda will try to help as much as possible. Therefore I think it may be better for Shane to take over the official title as this will be reflecting current reality anyway - no issue on my side :) I just need to keep control of existing 1.x branches of PicketLink IDM as this is what we still rely on in GateIn Portal and what we ship in EPP.

I propose that we rename picketlink-idm to picketlink-idm-legacy to make way for the new picketlink-idm, and rename cdi to picketlink-cdi (this module will then contain all the CDI and DeltaSpike integration for PicketLink IDM, plus some authorization features such as ACLs and permission management).  Are there any objections to this?
