I don't have big interest/knowledge in the excalibur community, so I
could probably help a mainly with decisions regarding components we use
in JAMES. That said, if this is the step needed to try to keep excalibur
alive I'm willing to help, for sure.

I think many JAMES PMC members have some sort of knowledge on the
cornerstone/excalibur libraries because we depend on them since the
beginning. I suggest you to ask also to the Cocoon PMC as AFAIK their
latest stable still have excalibur dependencies (is there any other ASF
project depending on excalibur?).

You should also be aware that a long term plan for JAMES is to remove
excalibur/cornerstone as a dependency (as we try to move away from
avalon, too), but this is not planned for tomorrow, so any solution that
will help excalibur for a while is welcome.


PS: closing excalibur is not a solution for JAMES and Cocoon, so let's
work to keep it alive :-)
