The comment on the change is:
updated info on NIOSSL and core Java prereq, fixed SVN link

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Components have their own release cycle, and each release
  will update everything that is in the component.
  Components are separate projects in JIRA, and they have their own Subversion subtree in

  The second level of grouping is the Module.
  A component holds one or more modules, where each module is

  It also includes a protocol execution framework based on interceptors.
  !HttpCore has no external dependencies. We keep the source compatible

- {{{module-niossl}}} in component !HttpCore, depends on {{{module-main}}}, {{{module-nio}}}
  
  The NIO modules add support for non-blocking Java NIO to the core.
+ Up to and including the release alpha6, NIO support for SSL was in
+ a separate module because of it's dependency on Java 5. After we upgraded
+ the Java requirement to 5.0 for everything except {{{module-main}}},
+ HttpNIOSSL was merged into HttpNIO.
- NIO was introduced with Java 1.4, but SSL support for NIO followed only in Java 5.
- Everything non-SSL is in {{{module-nio}}} to make it available to the
- largest user base possible. SSL support with it's dependency on Java 5
- is in {{{module-niossl}}}.
- Unless the version dependency is of importance in a discussion,
- these two modules can be considered as a single informal unit.
