I agree. It would be nice if it was a jakarta-wide thing, not just
Commons.

The list of current committers can be determined by logging on to
cvs.apache.org (icarus), and typing:

cat /home/cvs/CVSROOT/avail | grep jakarta-commons

Resulting in:

avail|morgand,husted,conor,geirm,costin,remm,vmassol,craigmcc,nacho,rwaldhoff,jvanzyl,donaldp,jericho,sanders,jstrachan,dmitri,jariw,dirkv,dsale,martinc,bayard,dwinterfeldt,rdonkin,jefft|jakarta-commons

It would be easy to set up a cron job to transform the 'avail' file into
a set of publicly accessible XML files, one for each project, containing
names of committers. Projects could then have an Ant task to fetch this
info:

<get src="http://jakarta.apache.org/" dest="committers/${name}.xml"/>

And then integrate it with the regular project docs, via
<style>/Anakia/Cocoon/whatever.

The only practical difficulty is that CVS is on a different box from the
website, so things would have to be done via ssh and scp.

I can do the script if people think this is a good idea.
