Subject Re: [functor] status evolution ?

Thanks for your help. Because this project seems to be in a state of 
limbo, I've decided to use JGA instead. (JGA is another functor API 
based on Java 5 generics. It also has a lot of the features that I 
wanted to see added to commons-functor.)  I'd rather not fork 
commons-functor into a separate sourceforge project. Perhaps one of the 
existing committers will take over the lead development someday.

Best regards,
