Sorry, I've been "off air" for a few days.

Yes, we should probably get a beta release out sooner rather than later.
IMHO, we can reasonably skip alpha, since both Struts and Turbine have
been using this component for a while.

I had been anticipating doing the RM thing, and am still willing to step
up to the plate. There are basically three issues holding up a *final*
release of FileUpload:

1) Two outstanding bugs in Bugzilla that need to be addressed.
2) Lack of comprehensive unit tests. What's there now is very limited.
3) Lack of documentation & web site organisation (e.g. download links).

We can probably shoot for a beta release without these being resolved,
although we really do need to sort out the web site. What's there now is a
bare-bones Maven-generated site, and at this time I don't know enough
about how Maven generates sites to know how to get this into shape.
Seemingly simple things like modifying the navigation bar, and getting the
window title to say what I want it to say, are still a mystery to me.

If someone more Maven-savvy than myself is willing to help sort out the
web site, and, in particular, add download links for the nightly builds,
and a slot for links to a forthcoming beta, then I think we could get a
beta 1 release into the world in fairly short order.
