with a significant increase in community members the last 6 months.  There are hundreds of
posts in the forums, some dating back over 2 years old.  Current mailing list activity is
around 100+ messages per month, and growing with the accumulation of new contributors and

- ''FILL ME IN''
+ JSecurity is already a 3+ year old open-source project with a long history and currently
in use in many open-source and commercial software products. The interest from the respective
communities that use JSecurity (, et. al.) have continuously grown over the last
few years, with very heavy growth in the last 6 months.  It is expected that this community
growth will only increase with the adoption of the ASF, and the commercial products that use
JSecurity will continue to encourage and ensure its longevity.
