Please pass our thanks to Iris, who is still a CXF committer :-)

Will be good, the group does need new people joining, we already have 
Alessio Soldano representing our friends from RedHat (RestEasy) there 
joining recently too.

Sure, please do. FYI, in CXF 3.1.7 we have JAX-RS 
MessageBodyReader/Writer cache supported something that Neal Hu and 
myself worked upon. MediaType cache has also been implemented earlier 
(with thanks to Alessio).
I believe one of your colleagues opened an issue earlier related to a 
CXF Bus synchronization issue and said they'd evaluate a fix.
