I'm not up on what is happening with the other projects, but I can speak for

that after a few releases in commons (2.0, 2.1 ...) then we may wish to consider
it for a top level project.  For now it best serves Jakarta by having it in

As for the mailing list for httpclient, we did everything to come to an
agreement and a successful vote.  I asked 3 times to 3 different email address
from 2 different accounts to have the new mailing list created but nobody did
anything about it ... I guess I'll try again when I'm feeling up to it. <grin>
