Hi Craig,

Thanks for the reply. I was not aware that a member of the community  
could move things forward, thats very interesting.

Could the project (committers) provide some feedback on this? I had  
asked a similar question on AR2 (http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-river-dev/200807.mbox/%3c9CE0773C-2DB8-46EB-BB33-1EC8DEA808D1@gmail.com%3e

) back on July 24th.

Again, if there is something that I can help with, let me know

Thanks and regards
