Anyone have some cycles to participate in the release vetting process?

River 3.0.1 is a bug fix release.

Remember if we're unable to continue this project, then we lose the 
ability to maintain River / Jini and we also lose the legal protections 
and visibility of Apache.

Apart from modularity (which lowers technical barriers to entry) and 
improved security, I think the most important upcoming feature is IPv6 
support, it would be ironic to see River fall over before IPv6 becomes 
ubiquitous, given that the deficiencies of IPv4 is likely responsible 
for Jini's failure to gain widespread adoption.

Note also that in spite of "new features" River remains backward 
compatible (in the net.jini.* namespace) with earlier releases.  I'm 
also working on a compatibility layer for easier migration away from 
com.sun.jini to org.apache.river namespaces.

We can't do it by ourselves, we need you too.
