You mean the statement that the work was really boring? ;-) ;-)

Ok, I've recovered it now. And yes, I'd love to see a better way to create
mock objects. Right now the MockRepository (and some unit tests) need to
create these objects, so -- so long as we can find a nice way to do that
[preferably under src/test, and perhaps not shipped w/ releases], I'm
definitely +1 to see the statics removed the core classes.

BTW: Sorry if I was crabby, I'm frustrated that I'm not getting this back
into shape quicker/sooner. I know we are close, I know we have a good
foundation, I think it is just hidden behind some confusion. I like your
Javadoc comments, and I'll try to add to those. I'm hoping we are 'clean'
within no more than a week, and we -- total group -- understand the codebase
we have, and how it works. That is the main short term goal, IMHO.

Also, I think it is key that we get green and stay green -- not having
working unit tests means we don't know when we delete/break something
important. For me (in Eclipse) I couldn't run the Ant unit tests, but I
think I now can. I'll work to get the tests working, and then we can rest
easier that we can hack w/o breaking (undetected).

regards,

Adam
