Subject RE: Is it a mountain? (Re: Donation of Admin Console- request for help)

Whoops I hit send too fast as I wanted to address one more issue in this... 

This is truly not an issue of support.  All of this donated code has not
only my full support, but I would like the opportunity to help out as support from my perspective is there at 150%.

I hardly knew any of you...yet i supported as much as i could even during
the early stages. same thing am doing with beehive/wsrp4j/muse (anything
that as a ws component whether they are destined for ws pmc or not).
remember, this is an open-source project!!!!!!!

what is it that you are afraid of? (that a few technical -1's on code
checkin would not handle?)
