Subject Re: Proposed Contribution to Apache Commons,

Also the source code is not in the proper package structure. The class's 
have packages, but are just dumped directly in src. There is javadoc, 
but just dumped in the main folder. I just dump that, and having support 
building the javadoc from build tools. Setting the structure of the 
project up into some sane will help get people to look at it. I'd again 
strongly recommend getting this into a maven standard project format.

If you want help putting this project into a healthy state, layout/build 
wise let me know, i could spare a few cycles.
