Subject Re: Who is responsible for JDOCentral.com?

Hi Andy,

I agree that the combination of Apache JDO home site plus JPOX site  
is most of what JDOCentral provided.

 From the behavior of the web site, the domain is still active but  
refers to an illegal page. This can be fixed (by the domain owner,  
which I believe is still Dirk) to redirect to a new location.

I'd be happy if the new location were on the Apache JDO site which  
would then refer the user to forums (on JPOX), mailing lists (JPOX  
plus JDO plus others on demand), presentations, news, other pages on  
either JPOX or JDO web site.

All the stakeholders have the ability to update the JDO site so this  
seems to be doable with the resources we currently have on board.
