Subject Re: Status of jcr-server

Hi Julian,

Just wanted to chime in that I'm also interested in contributing as best I
can to the JCR WebDAV effort, particularly in regard to the use of WebDAV
with the backend SPI.  That is, using the JCR API as a client for remotely
accessing (existing) WebDAV server implementations.

Regards,
Gary
