Definitely not offended - just 6 miles under with work :)  Plus Apache
stuff - I've been putting time into Jakarta Taglibs (resurrecting lots
of old code there), admining the JIRA a bit and getting Apache Attic
up and running.

Agreed that a release needs to happen and many thanks to Siegfried for
volunteering. I'm very prepared to help the release get out, just a
bit snowed under to take on the whole thing.

Looking at JIRA, there are issues in v1.3 that I think we should cover:

* is a bug so should be
considered for 1.2.
* has lots of doc
goodness and needs to be turned into an xdoc.
* is a bug, so should
also be considered.
* is something I'd like
to get in. I've attached a patch for people's opinions and put in 1.2
for now.
