Added JSecurity report

  = JSecurity =
+ 2008-October JSecurity Incubator status report
+ JSecurity is a powerful and flexible open-source Java security framework
+ that cleanly handles authentication, authorization, enterprise session
+ management and cryptography.
+ JSecurity has been incubating since June 2008.
+ Last month, a new external release was issued (0.9.0-RC2).
+ After this, a single bug fix has been implemented and
+ committed to the external SourceForge SVN repository.
+ Many other commits have been made, but all were nonfunctional
+ and were made to round out the project's JavaDoc.
+ The JavaDoc is already quite good, but not 100%.  The team has
+ discussed on the development list that it would be a good idea
+ to get the JavaDoc completed at 100% before releasing 0.9 final,
+ with 0.9 final being the last external release.  After this point,
+ we wanted to inject the code source into the Apache repository
+ as a 'clean slate' initiative.
+ The idea is that perhaps 0.9.1 would be an Apache release,
+ allowing that release to focus only on adherence to Apache
+ policy and not dependent on code or documentation.  Then all
+ subsequent releases could benefit from the experience of this
+ 'first run', continuing to maintain Apache policy.
+ The JavaDoc is currently being updated intermittently, as the
+ development team has the opportunity to update it in their spare
+ time.  It is certainly desirable to finish this effort soon,
+ hopefully no more than a week or two. But this time frame is
+ ultimately dependent upon the number of contributors.
+ The project team is not considering graduation at this point,
+ as the code is not ready for an Apache release. The community
+ is working well, with decisions being made in public.
+ The status is being maintained at
