London is fun, as long as you've got money to spend.
I've been there in March. If you have a mind for
museums, check out the Victoria & Albert.

I'll be leaving for my new year's eve trip on Dec 29th, too.
I get back on Jan 2nd, that leaves me some time to prepare
patches which you can review after your return. I'll start
work again on Jan 7th with a business trip, so there is no
hurry because I'll be offline anyway.

I understand. My problem is that I can't tell how often
I will have to travel. That's why I shun from such a huge
task and would rather focus on particular items for which
I can prepare a patch within one or two days, before I'm
on the road again - or not. The connection stuff is kind
of unfinished business for me :-)

That can hardly be discussed separately from a combined
HttpComponents jar. Getting Jakarta into the discussion
is a good idea.

Ok, I'll do that. The earlier we make significant changes, the
less code will be affected. Refactoring is one of those things
where Eclipse has the upper hand over Emacs.

I do ;-)

Connection interface. Version detection.
I have some less funny things on my list, too. Like getting more
familiar with Maven and the site generator. Maybe also with Maven
and it's JavaDoc plugin.

Thanks. If it's the weekend, there is no hurry. I won't be back
from the christmas family visit until Wednesday afternoon.
