I think the most important part is to document the location of the repo along with the module:
From there it is easy to find the apache repo and the github mirror.

You are right that there is unfortunately no way to mark repos as belonging to aries but I think prepending the name with aries already help a bit.

Actually I don't think the separate repos are a big problem for users or developers who want to help out. As long as we document well how to participate it might even be easier for new devs as each repo is small and cohesive.
You check it out, do mvn clean install at the top and are done.

Of course it is difficult for current Aries committers and PMCs to keep an overview over all changes but that was always difficult in Aries. Aries is a collection of quite diverse projects.

On the individual git repos...
I realize that this has been discussed for quite a while, but what I find
missing with that approach is an overview of the Aries projects.
All of the git repos are part of a single 'Apache' group and at least I
don't know of a way to find all the git repos that belong to Aries.

In github they use organisations to provide such groupings, but since ours
all show up under 'Apache' this doesn't help here.

With SVN you at least get all the Aries-related projects in one folder,
well at least you used to before the separate git repos appeared. Is there
any way to get such a view back with the git approach?

Sounds good to me.

What do you think about also moving tx control into its own git repo?

The OSGi Alliance has recently put out a draft release of the R7 specs,
including the Transaction Control Chapter.

There have been a lot of improvements to the Transaction Control
implementation since the RFC was originally released.  In particular there
have been a lot of fixes to the pool lifecycle management, and the XA JDBC
resource provider now implements the recovery portion of the specification

I therefore propose a 0.0.2 release of the Aries Transaction Control code
including these improvements. I’m not aware of any outstanding bugs, so I
propose to start work on the release immediately.
