Subject [id] Commons-id out of sandbox?
Date Mon, 29 Aug 2005 09:27:52 GMT

Some while ago I tried asking about the status of commons-id component 
in the commons sandbox. I received no proper replies on the -user list 
so I'm trying -dev now. :-)

What should I do if commons-id is no longer active? Should I fork it 
somewhere or step up as a potential maintainer for the code? At the 
moment I'm mostly just interested in the UUID part of the library.
