The board has also created the Avalon PMC :-)

Since we will be doing basically the same steps, I will follow the 
discussion here closely, and eventually bring forward in both projects 
what interesting steps are being carried out on the other project.

Actually, I have one question already, because I'm in difficulty myself 
on this. The Ant CVS is named jakarta-ant. Will it change? Will "ant" 
begin with hosting a newer ant release?

No need to relpy now, I'll be waiting here for some hints, thank you :-)
