Both GSP and GNUJSP unfortunately have been released under the GPL license.
As a result, we cannot accept submission of the code into the Jakarta
project since that license conflicts with both the opinions of the active
developers as well as the Apache/BSD style license.

My statement above is the first reason to not consider your question. But,
even if GNUJSP had an ok license, then doing the above might not be a good
idea because it just adds confusion and extra work for the developers.

A better idea would be to pull Vincent into the project and encourage him to
help with the development once the code is released. This is something that
I asked Stefano to do in private email. If Vincent wants to join and work on
this, then he is definately encouraged to do so. Otherwise, we will just
continue the efforts to release JoSPer and work on that.
