Sorry, Simon, I must have missed your reply. 
I've never participated in Commons (or any other Jakarta project, for that matter).  If I
was interested in helping out on BeanUtils, what steps would I take to do so?

[AARGH -- I hate top-posting!]

Shawn (correctly) assumes BeanUtils is unmaintained because I said so. A
couple of months ago I saw that the bugzilla count on beanutils was over
80, and so I put out a request for people to help me get this addressed.
I got two offers of assistance: not a lot, but enough so I got stuck in.
However the two volunteers quickly vanished. I certainly didn't want to
be working on beanutils on my own so I have now stopped too.

There are currently 82 bugzilla entries for beanutils, and no-one other
than myself has committed a patch for many months now.

That definitely qualifies as unmaintained.

Shawn: I did reply to your question:



A. Because it breaks the logical sequence of discussion
Q. Why is top posting bad?

 Or is it being left to stagnate for a reason (i.e. Java 5).
