I know its tough on you guys, and you've done incredibly well with a
shifting target. However, if a committer should fancy adding a comment
as he passes over the code then I would encourage him to go for it, I
know I'll read and appreciate it.

I was just trying to encourage Juka who was tempted to add some
documentation as he goes. I'm not in anyway suggesting that you should
stop what you are doing and start documenting everything now. I'm quite
happy to wait for the glossy brochure once the JSR170 is agreed ;)

absolutely agreed. but we're still struggling with completeing the
implementation of jcr 0.16.12 and 0.16.4 is already lurking around the
corner :( 

i have rewritten large areas of jackrabbit (or its former incarnation in
the slide project) multiple times over the course of the last 2 years,
trying to keep pace with the ever changing spec. getting jackrabbit and
the tck feature complete has IMO absolute priority. i'll start working
on improving javadoc once i got the more important items off my todo
