Thanks for offering to help and sorry for the response latency.

There appears to be only one method missing from the JDK 1.5 UUID 
interface, viz., nameUUIDFromBytes 

I am not a UUID spec expert, so some independent review of the 
implementation and verification that our methods are both consistent 
with both the JDK 1.5 versions and the spec would be great.  I am 
personally OK with us departing from the JDK 1.5 signatures if others 
agree with Tim that the JDK did not get some things right according to 
the spec.

A few other things need attention prior to release. Volunteers welcome!

1) clean up javadoc warnings and make sure javadoc is complete and what 
the javadoc says is what the code does (see next item)

2) improve test coverage.  Current clover report is here:

3) the site build is currently broken.  This is mostly due to the svn 
move.  I would prefer to get rid of the extends sandbox-build stuff.
Has anyone succeeded in building a sandbox site since the move.  The 
site.jsl does not seem to work now.

4) Decide what to do about singletons and dependencies in 
IdentifierUtils. <>

5) Make sure each of the following issues has been addressed:

Did I miss anything?  Comments / suggestions / patches are welcome.

I will review and commit patches (starting with the ones included above 
:-) and play the RM role once we get out of the sandbox.
