Great, welcome aboard.

Idle, nobody has been working on it since it was donated. The original
author left the project due to lack of time.

Uh, didn't know this one but I didn't dive into it that deeply.

No, I was going to write a stylesheet for the generated doclet DTD to

Having all documentation (including javadocs) with a common look and
feel would be killer.
