pretty much.

there was a thread a couple months ago about doing just this. a few of
the folks from the slide community were interested then, but i have no
idea what's going on over there these days.

there's quite a bit of dav code in cosmo that could probably be
donated to the asf (need to doublecheck first). i've been busy with
other stuff at osaf, but now i can make time to address this, starting
tomorrow very possibly.

i think the easiest, most efficient way to get the ball rolling would
be to create another contrib project. that way we don't pollute
jcr-server in case the effort dies out, and we avoid the politics of
coming out of the gate aiming for some kind of top level thinger.

i'm a bit distracted right now, so i may have overlooked something
important. call me out if i have :)
