i was a bit confused by what you meant by the to do list in your last 

there is a to do list which is generated by maven. is this what you meant?

the two main items on this are a DOM walker and a SAW writer both of which 
are fairly major tasks. i was hoping to dissuade you from taking on either 
of these just yet.

the other item is the documentation task which i transfered from the 
package documentation.

the documentation does need improving. that's where i'm going to be 
concentrating my effects. (or am i getting confused again - are you 
referring to the documentation for the test cases?)

most of the test cases are not really of good quality. they should 
probably be rewritten to use xml-unit or something. on reflection i don't 
think that there's time for much improvement before the release.
