I posted this thread originally on the 22nd, 1 day before ApacheCon week
started, today is the first working day since ApacheCon ended. Incubator in
general has been a ghost town during this time, so I expect (hope) that this
will be picked up and acted on this week sometime.

I hope that is the case, lets wait to here.

To recap, we have now :-

myself (gmcdonald) - (see start of thread for what I offered to do)
Grobmeier - main code dude
Niclas hedhman - has offered to mentor and commit patches as necessary.

Jim is still a Mentor so we need one more.

Looking forward to showing that the road to the attic is a two way street -
we don't need to go that way!
