And, as Robert Frost would add "good fences make good neighbors".  The
corollary being that one should respect one's contracts.

Chuckle.  When I first entered the Apache world, my first greeting was a
flame by Stefano as I desired at the time to make Tomcat 3.0 better.  My
sin?  I also happen to accept monetary compensation from IBM.

Hey!  How'd my name get in there?  <grin>

Relative to Cocoon, I wrote the PHP side code that allows PHP to be run as
a servlet.  And the Cocoon side code that allows this servlet to be used as
a generator.

If you want to see some bio on me, here's some links with pictures:

Relative to Apache, my passion at the moment is to see if there is any way
to bootstrap these isolated subproject communities into a larger community.
I'm chair of Jakarta, and a member of the XML PMC.  The most tangible
realization of my efforts is http://jakarta.apache.org/gump/ .  I'm making
progress on getting subprojects to respect their contracts, but I still see
three jars in cocoon's cvs with dates instead of release numbers on them.
Sigh.

I also spend a good amount of time thinking about web services, including
coding and trying to bootstrap a community for this here at ApacheLand.  I
see web services as a platform and language independent component
architecture.
