Thanks for this. It is pretty time consuming to say the least. I noticed
that we also cleaned up/resolved/marked as not valid a good few issues as
well which is always nice :0)
For future reference, you can do batch changes to issue fields and can also
mark to be silent so that the list doesn't get informed, however on this
occasion I think it was best that we all can see what is on the agenda for
the 0.8.0 release so thank you.

Now 17... what a difference a day or two makes!

We can hopefully integrate Lev's patch proposal(s) which will resolve the
above. I suppose this is blocked by the release of the smargl library
correct? What tome scale are we looking at for this?

Yes +1. Currently we use some kind of embedded Jetty server during the
build/testing, therefore I wonder if off the top of anyone head they would
know how to configure the server for serving static content? We are talking
literally three or four files (and as many test cases) which are the devil
'live' cases which present us with unstable builds.
I am not overly familiar with Jetty API so as of writing I don't know how
to serve static content from the configuration we currently have, however I
can't imagine it would be difficult.

soon. I think the community requires one as we have struggled slightly
(which is only natural) to progress since leaving the incubator. On the
positive side, the fundamental modularization and restructuring of Any23
(along with the other contributions) has been excellent. We need to push
this out and get others using the artifacts.
