Subject [math] New involvement (was Re: commons-math)

Your absolutely welcome to join the commons developers list and post 
this there as well (I've forwarded it.) Others may have strong ideas of 
where to best focus development, they are welcome to "chime in".

In terms of Complex Numbers package, I think we had reached a decision 
not to include it in the initial first release, primarily due to 
unresolved discussion in the group

I suspect we're at a point where we should revaluate what we are going 
to place into the first release. Really, we've come along way. 
Previously, Phil Steitz had been managing the task list in a most 
excellent fashion. Unfortunately, he has personally decided to focus 
onto other projects (although I'd like him to know all his efforts are 
highly appreciated and he is always welcome to step back in when he wants).

With that in mind, we should discuss the goals we need to resolve to get 
to a release point, so much work has been completed to date and we 
should get it out for the benefit of the Commons
