  <title>Proposal for Lang Package</title>
  <section name="Proposal for Lang Package">
  <subsection name="(0) Rationale">
  <p>The standard Java libraries fail to provide enough methods for 
  manipulation of its main components. The <em>Lang</em> Package provides 
  these extra methods. There are other classes which might justifiably 
  be included in java.lang someday, this package also provides for them.</p>
  <subsection name="(1) Scope of the Package">
  <p>This proposal is to create a package of Java utility classes for the
  classes that are in java.lang's hierarchy, or are considered to be so 
  standard as to justify existence in java.lang. The <em>Lang</em> Package 
  also applies to primitives and arrays.</p>
  <subsection name="(1.5) Interaction With Other Packages">
  <p><em>Lang</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.  Lang 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 initial classes came from the Commons.Util subproject.</p>
  <p>The proposed package name for the new component is
  <subsection name="(3)  Required Jakarta-Commons Resources">
  <li>CVS Repository - New directory <code>lang</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
  <li>Bugzilla - New component "Lang" under the "Commons" product
      category, with appropriate version identifiers as needed.</li>
  <li>Jyve FAQ - New category "commons-lang" (when available).</li>
  <subsection name="(4) Initial Committers">
  <p>The initial committers on the Lang component shall be as follows:
  <li>Henri Yandell (bayard)</li>
  <li>Daniel Rall (dlr)</li>
  <li>Stephen Colebourne (scolebourne)</li>
