So, IMHO, this clearly needs splitting off.

Some proposals for votes, I guess?

Geeklog 1.x

1) The application can not be split into a framework and release

+1  from me

2) The application should be renamed to make it more marketable

-1 from me

I beleive it's too "late" to do that, and we're not at an appropriate
break point for this. We have to "live" with Geeklog 1.x, which I
don't find to be a problem, it's just at the "enterprise" end.

Geeklog 2.x

1) The project should be clearly delineated from distributions of applications

+1 from me

I beleive we should have a framework separate to lots of "core team" plugins.

1a) There should be a core framework
1b) There should be a set of "core" plugins
1c) There should be a community distribution called Geeklog 2.x that
is an upgrade path from Geeklog 1.x

2) The project should be renamed to make it more marketable.

-1 from me.

With a split into framework, plugins and distributions, I don't think
this is necessary, but I guess you could call it G2F (Geeklog 2
Framework) to say that a distro is powered by it without saying

2a) There should be a core "commercial" distro with an appropriate
name maintained also by core team


And of course, Blaine, Trinity etc could maintain their own premium
distro's based on the framework.
