Rahul, Christian,
Thank you for you advice.

I usually use patch files but since many files are impacted (not counting
those generated by javacc), I thought it would be more convenient; dropping
the zip over a trunk & use an IDE to check the modifications is easier than
resolving conflicts. :-)

I understand; however, the invested effort to create each issue &
create/apply/verify each patch versus a bigger one is related to the
probability that they may be looked at (catch 22). I originally hoped for
JEXL-55 to generate some comments at least from the functional
description... :-(

Which is exactly my initial worry; since there hasn't been any activity for
a long time on JEXL , I can't but wonder what that probability is! :-) I do
understand that for a contribution to be looked at, it must intersect one
committer's interest; no-one wants to spend 2 hours reviewing a heavy patch
to a project just for the fun of it. And as a contributor, I've no interest
in posting patches that will sit forever...

Is there still any committer interested in releasing JEXL 2.0?

Faxed it today just in case.
