+1 ... we will try our best to get the tests operational at the right
time; now is clearly not the right time! (We're a long way off :))

There haven't been any specific discussions around Axis2/C other than
the original stuff we discussed at the Axis2 F2Fs. The plan then was to
redo it for the reasons Paul indicated in his reply.

W.r.t. WS-*- yes we fully plan to keep pushing on building
WS-Addressing, WS-Security*, WS-ReliableMessaging and WS-AT on top of
Axis2/C. Unfortunately can't give a timeline right now but I'd like to
see Axis2/C getting to 1.0 with SOAP 1.1/1.2 and WS-Addr support early
next year. Then we are in a position to unleash WS-Sec/RM/AT etc. all in

Hope this helps!
