This is a slightly euphemistic version of the timeline, but in general 
we can only appreciate the time you have been allocating to the Cause in 
the past few weeks. You'll get your rewards somehow ;-)

As I stated in one of my past mails, I'll have at least a month's worth 
of paid time to work on Forrest after the GetTogether, fixing DTDs, bots 
and documentation, providing migration paths etc etc.

I'll be very happy to work on this together.

Also, we should propose forrest-dev as the caretakers of the main site - we have the right mix of people over here, and 
nobody else really cares.

OTOH, I privately expressed my support to Stefano if he wants to propose as a toplevel project to the board, so maybe will quickly become an empty container (although we 
should check that assumption with xerces/xalan/fop/xindice/axkit).

I know I reacted kind of harsh on your solo action, but I guess we know 
each other already long enough to live through that :-)

Thumbs up, Nicola.
