Sorry to leave everyone hanging. Anne Louise is working on how we can
best integrate Seam 2 w/ jBPM 4 / Drools 5 into EAP 5. We have a
tentative plan, which should be finalised soon.

Yes, I think we can do that (I was assuming that was the plan anyway).

Can you tell us what the earliest release we should put in 2.2.0 is?
And roughly what date we can target? If we don't have time to do
2.2.0 and 2.2.1, I guess we could do:
Seam 2.2.0.BETA1 - Wednesday 22nd April
Seam 2.2.0.CR1 - Wednesday 13th May
Seam 2.2.0 - Wednesday 17th June
Tom and Anne-Louise, how do these dates fit your respective schedules?
