I think we should do it, but I remember that Henri had some reservations 
when this was discussed last time. It had something to do with the local 
Apache repo and where Jakarta artifact should be in that repo. Perhaps 
he can fill us in on that situation.

If it is decided that this should be done I volunteer to help out with 
the move.

Not much. When a downstream consumer wants to upgrade a Jakarta Commons 
dependency they will have to change groupId as well as version, instead 
of just the version.

This move has already been made for several other (Apache) jars and is 
the "right way" to go. Have a look at
to see the current status.
