+1. Really neat =)

yup =)

some thoughts though:

I don't think I will be doing anything with C# for some while (I'll wait
for mono 1.0 I guess) so I certainly wouldn't be working/voting on any
of it. I'm sure more people feel like that. Then, sometimes, maintaining
a port is more work than just slowly diverging. I can see how Avalon 4
C# would not include Component, for example.

If we do actually bring the port over to jakarta (rather than put it at
avalonia or somethin') it seems we need an Avalon Specification and then
an implementation in java and an implementation in C#, where both C# and
java developers bother with the specs but not with both implementations.
Dunno. I'd like whoever proposes this stuff to also take all this stuff
into account.

I'd also like an explicit statement from the PMC that they're okay with
this (though I'm sure that if the board is, they should be too =).

Anyway, small wrinkles only. I hope this turns out to be a success!

Regardless of directions, this should be on the jakarta news page =)
