I am very happy (and i guess every body else here as well) that you are 
back. I almost thought we had lost you forever. It felt a bit like after 
Gandalfs fall in Moira. But now you are back as "Jeff the White" and 
will guide us to the release.

Yep we have not been idle but are full of energy and ready for 2003! 
Also I met Oleg the other day in a pub in Zurich and we discussed (among 
other stuff) HttpClient. Unfortunately his commit rights have not been 
granted yet. So I had to do all the checking in for him.

The code base is stable as usual and has had some major fixes (like the 
encoding patch required to make it run on z/OS, or the binary 
independence of JDK 1.4). There are still some patches pending. Oleg is 
basically the only one who is reviewing them currently as I am extremely 
busy doing other projects (that's why I'm here on Sunday actually). But 
IMHO we can just tag and release any time.

Happy to have you back
