This is not a democracy. Some people contribute more to the project
than others, and those people therefore have a bigger say.
Yes, I have a say ;-). I was simply on vacation when Dan raised this issue here - for the
background, we have been discussing this issue for a while now. There are good arguments
on both sides. Personally, I come down somewhat on the side of migration (if a few
blocking issues with JBoss.org
can be resolved which I will outline elsewhere).
Needless to say I have an enormous amount of respect for Gavin and his opinion and I am
not prepared to support migrating the Seam website to jboss.org
Gavin's full support on the matter. This has always been my position, and will
continue to be.

Which, as you've already been told, is more a matter of the location
of the server. European users are not reporting problems.
is *very* responsive here in the UK.
Dan, Lincoln and Rodney have been investigating moving the server to somewhere with better
peering. We will conduct some speed trials of any new location (with the communities help)
to ensure good latency in all parts of the world.
