This work will involve a fairly long-lasting topic branch in git. Emanuel Muckenhuber is going to act as the owner of that branch. He will merge patches sent to him by others doing work on this feature. He'll also occasionally rebase his branch onto master. Others doing work on this should rebase their local topic branches onto his before notifying him of a request to pull in their work.
Emanuel's "official" branch for this work can be found at https://github.com/emuckenhuber/jboss-as/compare/patches-master.
