Just a quick opinion poll between our users:

As Village is a constant source of pain and those that are currently
using the 3.1 branch of Torque and probably also the 3.2 release will
be stuck on Village:

Any interest from you if I just whip up a small "branched Village"
site outside of the ASF, apply all the patches to the village tree
that you like to see and then just build a "village-<some
version>.jar" that we can distribute through ibiblio?

This wouldn't be a hard thing to do and though the plans for post-3.2
releases are to get rid of village, this might help our current users
in the short run.

As I already have a village tree that builds with maven, building a
site would be no big deal.
