thanks for volunteering! :P

more seriously, Ulrich, this is an ASF community and it functions 
according to the policies the ASF sets for its communities. That 
sometimes includes incubation, a bit of a barrier to entry, etc etc. We 
could go into a debate about whether or not it makes sense that the 
things work they way they work, or we could see about getting some work 
done :D

I also disagree that we don't have web connectivity. Example: cocoon. It 
just works 'inside out'; but I suspect a large part of the reason no-one 
is building an avalon-based webserver is that you can build an 
avalon-based web application quite easily.

this is not about ego. I see the smiley, but I still wonder what made 
that idea pop into your head...care to elaborate?
