Looks like the quickstarts are referencing to the Pedro's repository, not PicketBox repository.

Here comes the tricky part to understand, at least for me. If I recall correctly PicketLink v3 is our
opportunity to build something new from the experience of Seam Security, PicketBox, GateIn, Resteasy….
Are we filling the gaps with PicketBox instead of provide the final solution? For example, picketlink provides something like this for me:
public class DefaultIdentity implements Identity….
On picketlink-extensions I have:
public class DefaultPicketBoxIdentity extends DefaultIdentity implements PicketBoxIdentity…
It makes me confuse. Are we filling the gaps on PicketLink or creating workarounds inside something new?
