What are you waiting for feedback on at this point?
Did you hash out an acceptable design with Glen?  If so, check it in.

Why are you "about to give up"?

Just a hint, if you haven't heard anything in a month, it probably is off the scope for 99%
of normal busy committers. :-)

We want you to contribute, unless you get a -1, don't let us get in your way! :-)

Subject: RE: too many "inactive" committers

About "...encourage more people to become active"... I have been active at
raising issues as an Axis user and usually got great feedback, this was
great and made me adopting Axis.  

Now that I want to contribute I find the committers quite silent.  I have
been waiting at least a month now regarding soap header stuff...

Am I hitting one of the limit of the Open Source process... 

Not having a question answered as a user is obviously not fun, having a
submitted feature sleeping in without appropriate feedback is worse.  

I have to admit that I am about to give up.

No, I'm serious: I think it makes absolute sense to clean up
committer lists every once in a while- people become active
with the good intention of being active for ever. However, 
reality beats them down often. 

Getting new blood flowing thru the project is critical to
good health IMO!

Cutting out all the "sleeper" developers would highlight the
real status of the Axis committer community and hopefully 
that'll encourage more people to become active.
