+        <em>HttpClient</em> was started in 2001 as a subproject of the
+        Jakarta Commons, based on code developed by the
+        <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/slide/">Jakarta Slide</a> project.
+        It was promoted out of the Commons in 2004, graduating to a separate
+        Jakarta project. In 2005, the
+        <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/httpcomponents/">HttpComponents</a>
+        project at Jakarta was created, with the task of developing a successor
+        to <em>HttpClient 3.x</em> and to maintain the existing codebase until
+        the new one is ready to take over.
+        The <a href="http://commons.apache.org/">Commons</a> project,
+        cradle of <em>HttpClient</em>,
+        left <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/">Jakarta</a>
+        in 2007 to become an independent Top Level Project.
+        For the time being, <em>HttpClient</em> still has it's home with
+        <em>HttpComponents</em> at Jakarta.
