yeah I get that - for some reason I thought Bill Dc. added more support to the forge tools but that might just have been daydreaming ;)

That's not my understanding. I get that Forge is focused on Java projects, in particular Maven projects, but I don't think it is--or should be--sharply focused on Java EE. Contributors from Red Hat may be focused on that aspect, so if that was the context then I agree. But there are many community members interested in seeing Forge used outside that scope. We don't want the perception of Forge to get pinned to Java EE, IMO.
