That's the whole point of the argument. A couple people working on  
something that gets pushed into a release is not going to be found by  
any of us, it's going to be found by users. Which is why we have  
longish release cycles where the context code is not shifting around.  
We have a hard enough time with Maven itself. If the 1.1 had been  
released and soaked the whole period of the initial RCs that would be  
easier to deal with.

I'm frankly not interested any more. If no one here is interested  
that's fine.

It's in there because I asked him to and the only thing of interest is  
the Confluence parser right now. It will be redone with JavaCC using  
WikiModel as no one is using the Wiki markup parsers from Doxia on a  
daily basis so they just don't get the attention. There is also now  
WikiText in Mylyn which has now also surpassed Doxia.
