    <title>Proposal for IO Package</title>
  <section name="Proposal for <em>IO</em> Package">
  <subsection name="(0) Rationale">
  <p>Many software projects have a need to perform I/O in various ways, and
  the JDK class libraries provide a lot of functionality, but sometimes you
  need just a little bit more.  The io package seeks to  encapsulate some of
  the most popular i/o base classes into one easy to  use package.</p>
  <subsection name="(1) Scope of the Package">
  <p>This proposal is to create a package of Java utility classes for  various
  types of i/o related activity.</p>
  <subsection name="(1.5) Interaction With Other Packages">
  <p><em>IO</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.  IO will be a dependency for several existing components in the
  open source world.</p>
  <p>No external configuration files are utilized.</p>
  <subsection name="(2) Initial Source of the Package">
  <p>The original Java classes are splashed around various Apache  subprojects.
   We intend to seek them out and integrate them.</p>
  <p>The proposed package name for the new component is <code></code>.</p>
  <subsection name="(3)  Required Jakarta-Commons Resources">
   <li>CVS Repository - New directory <code>io</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     [IO].</li>
   <li>Bugzilla - New component "IO" under the "Commons" product     category,
  with appropriate version identifiers as needed.</li>
   <li>Jyve FAQ - New category "commons-io" (when available).</li>
  <subsection name="(4) Initial Committers">
  <p>The initial committers on the IO component shall be Scott Sanders and
  Nicola Ken Barozzi and Henri Yandell</p>
