au contraire, it is everyone's job to deal with new submissions.

It is also my job to
-get stuff done at work, which today includes why axis doesnt like my code,
which is why I'm delving into the depths of axis
-maintain some modicum of a life

so right now on my ant pending plate is
-add DD's <which> task
-commit Jesse's patches to VSS, SOS
-finish off the incorporation of Brian's VBC task and refactoring of .NET
-add XsdToDotnet, fix WsdlToDotnet to handle multiple XSD files
-get back to proposals/http and add good http support to ant

patches, as there are the tests and docs to integrate. I do try and balance
