Subject Re: Announcement of contribution of HttpService to the Apache Felix project

really usable, so it will be great to have it be part of Felix. 
Certainly, I am willing to contribute my portion of it! :-)

p.s. I am traveling in Taiwan (for my wedding reception), so my

cafes with free wifi over the next couple weeks. :-)
