See the history. We have tried that on various occasions.

Surely we can re-use some of this from Maven
if we want to do something in the future.

Yes, but better to be clean handover rather than a
lingering copy. This code has been through many homes,
so obviously is valuable. We need to have a clear trail.

That would be the next step. After we are sure
that we want it moved out, then we can formulate
a proposal to Maven.

Sorry, my final "propose" sentence was poorly worded.

I am away for a long long weekend from this afternoon.
We don't want to hold up Vincent, so if someone feels
that positive consensus is reached, then please start
that process to link up with last month's thread from
him and the Maven people. Otherwise please start a
Forrest vote for clarification.
