Subject Re: Jini.org and mailing list

Thanks & Welcome Elijah,

Great to have someone willing to jump in and assist.

Jim Waldo very graciously went to the trouble of obtaining and recently 
uploading the email list archives to JIRA- 

I think we should maintain, preserve and fund via volunteer contribution 
jini.org for now, move relevant information to the Apache River site and 
eventually archive the existing jini.org site and redirect the domain 
name to Apache River.  (Keeping jini.org registered)

I'm just waiting for the paypal (or equivalent) account to make the 
contribution to.
