Me too - and something I really like is that this happening in 
conjunction with the Incubator, Apache commons, etc.  This makes it much 
easier for the Avalon PMC to pull in support from other places and deal 
constructively will the migration and reorganization process .

Its already been made clear that we can maintain all of the existing 
URLs (comments from Jakarta and Board members) .  We don't want to break 
anything (code or web links) used by our user community - but there is 
somethinig new emerging - but that's about a "united avalon" identity - 
which comes back to the PMCs initatial work on charter etc.

On the infrastructure side - are you involved in that at all ?

Cheers, Steve.
