Excerpt of the [FAQ>http://www.exoplatform.com/portal/public/website/aboutUS/eXoJBossPartnership]:

"~*What will happen to eXo's other open source projects?*~

~eXo Portal and JCR (along with some related components) will be moved to JBoss.org. All of eXo Platform's other projects will stay on OW2 under the Affero General Public License (AGPL).~

~*Why change the license at all for the new portal project?*~

~We believe the LGPL will encourage broader adoption of the new portal project, as it gives companies more flexibility to leverage and OEM the product.~

~*Will the eXo community have to register to participate on JBoss.org?*~


~*Will eXo Portal, JCR and other eXo products continue to be supported on multiple application servers?*~

~Yes, eXo Platform is committed to broad support for all the major application servers in the market. We believe this is critical to driving enterprise adoption of our solutions and will enable customers to leverage existing IT investment. While the portal development will be done primarily on JBoss Application Server, eXo Platform will maintain support and certification process for other application servers, including Apache Tomcat, JoNAS and IBM WebSphere Application Server.~"
