Actually, my problem is with @author-tags...  I think they are  
useless and potentially dangerous at this point.  Here's a nice  
presentation from the Subversion team (it's a good presentation, and  
this particular topic starts at about 17m30s.  Very recommended

Unfortunately, I've run out of time.  I currently got the following  
things on my plate:

* JCR integration
* bug triage (on the issue tracker)
* Apache graduation
* 3.0 refactoring
* general participation on the mailing lists; responding to user  
questions, etc.

I also have a book project which is now overdue, and on which I will  
have to concentrate from now on until it is in better shape.  Our  
first child is also due in about four weeks, and there's a lot of  
practical stuff to be done still.  And unfortunately, these two have  
to take precendence over JSPWiki hacking.

I was hoping to get the JCR integration done before the Christmas  
holidays, but unfortunately I hit some major snags, which will need  
some rethinking.  Like the fact that in order to get a WikiPage, you  
need a WikiContext; and in order to get a WikiContext, you need a  
WikiPage...  Versioning is also a pain.

At any rate, with respect to graduation, this is not good news unless  
someone else can take the load off me.  Since getting a kid is a new  
situation for me, I can't even give an estimate on how much time I  
possibly have for hacking.  But at any rate, don't expect a whole lot  
of responses from me in the next few months.  I am going to  
concentrate on the JCR integration, and just ignore a lot of the  
other stuff.

Unfortunately, free time is a limited resource, so others will need  
to step up now.
