I sent in a CLA by mail early in April. I guess it didn't make it. I'll 
try and remember to fax it tomorrow.

I've done some refactoring to create a plugins-common module, and also 
made a start on an IDEA plugin. I did however (after getting a basic 
plugin working) discover that IDEA 7 already has a feature to generate 
EJB3 annotations (its on the right click menu on the XML editor when 
ejb-jar.xml is open) - I'm sure you can imagine my disappointment!

I was going to submit two patches, one with the refactoring to the 
common module, and one with the work I've done in Idea already, (I guess 
we need to decide whether to continue with this in light of finding this 
feature in IDEA 7).

I'll try and get these patches into Jira this evening.
