  <title>Proposal for Codec Package</title>
  <body bgcolor="white">
  <div align="center">
  <h1>Proposal for <em>Codec</em> Package</h1>
  <h3>(0) Rationale</h3>
  <p>Many software projects have a need to use various formats of data, and to
  be able to switch between various formats.  The codec package seeks to 
  encapsulate some of the most popular encode/decode algorithms in one easy
  to use, well tested package.  A base64 codec is the first candidate, with 
  others to follow soon.</p>
  <h3>(1) Scope of the Package</h3>
  <p>This proposal is to create a package of Java utility classes for the
  encoding/decoding of various types of data. A base64 codec will be the
  first implementation.</p>
  <h3>(1.5) Interaction With Other Packages</h3>
  <p><em>Codec</em> relies only on standard JDK 1.2 (or later) APIs for
  production deployment.  It utilizes the JUnit unit testing framework for
  developing and executing unit tests, but this is of interest only to
  developers of the component.  Codec will be a dependency for
  several existing components in the open source world.</p>
  <p>No external configuration files are utilized.</p>
  <h3>(2) Initial Source of the Package</h3>
  <p>The original Java classes (<code>Base64</code>, etc.) are splashed
  various Apache subprojects.  We intend to seek them out and integrate them.</p>
  <p>The proposed package name for the new component is
  <h3>(3)  Required Jakarta-Commons Resources</h3>
  <li>CVS Repository - New directory <code>codec</code> in the
      <code>jakarta-commons</code> CVS repository.</li>
  <li>Mailing List - Discussions will take place on the general
      <em></em> mailing list.  To help
      list subscribers identify messages of interest, it is suggested that
      the message subject of messages about this component be prefixed with
  <li>Bugzilla - New component "Codec" under the "Commons" product
      category, with appropriate version identifiers as needed.</li>
  <li>Jyve FAQ - New category "commons-codec" (when available).</li>
  <h3>(4) Initial Committers</h3>
  <p>The initial committers on the BeanUtils component shall be Scott Sanders
  and ???(Your name here)</p>
