Subject Re: Getting the latest JCS jar
Date Wed, 04 Jan 2006 12:30:13 GMT
Many people have the same problem getting things running. We really need

Actually some navigation like other projects (e.g. 
http://directory.apache.org/subprojects/network/features.html ) would help.

I'd be willing to help in this if needed.
