 From what I understand Event was forked off by Berin and he 
continued development at d_haven and over that time 
significantly improved the codebase. AFAIK no one else from 
this project has significantly contributed to the new 
codebase (or even the old one?).

I would suggest that a good way to move forward would be to 
allow Berin to continue development at d_haven. The 
Excalibur event package is then deprecated in favor of the 
next stable d_haven release. Until such a time people can 
continue to use the old excalibur package.

If (and only if) there ends up being significant 
contribution from excalibur committers to the d_haven 
codebase then it can be moved back here if that is their 

At the moment it seems unwise to to migrate a codebase that 
has a development community of essentially one to Excalibur. 
Even if it was to migrate to Apache I would suggest that 
Jakarta Commons is probably a better destination. The reason 
is that it will have better exposure there and is much more 
likely to be adopted by a wider range of users and 
developers than if it came to Excalibur.

I don't think we should be worried that Berin is going to 
massively alter the codebase and leave fortress stranded and 
in that light I am having trouble figuring out why it should 
arrive here.
