Absolutely agree. I also think we will need a place where proposed non-release editions can prove their worth and possibly attain release status. Integration project is the logical place for that process, as that graduation really is only about testing automation and community consensus.

Thanks for bringing this in as we have got some requests for hosting distributions other than the 3 we know in the integration repository, karaf or toaster are examples of this. I personally think that any distribution that can help the community with any particular task and it is not tight to one single project (i.e. we already have controller and ofplugin editions in their own repos) can be hosted in integration. Building editions does not take long (2,5 mins) compared to testing them (30 mins).

I don’t think there was ever an explicit decision that integration/distributions/ should *only*
be the Release Editions… but I do know that folks think of it as if there were. And so there was a desire
for some clarification.
What I would suggest is that the TSC make clear that:
1) The integration project committers can decide what things they want in the integration/distributions/
in support of the community doing collaborative integration development (or where ever they decide they should
put distribution like things).
2) The TSC politely requests that the integration project keep distribution directories for each Release Edition in
support of the Release when they are decided.
I would respectfully ask the TSC consider making this clarification at the upcoming TSC meeting on Thursday.
I would further invite discussion on this on the mailing lists :)
