This cannot be done, as the layering structure of the ASF won't "allow" it.
It can be hosted either in commons, either here (but then it would be
swallowed by the TC project itself), or as a top level project of Jakarta
(or some other project)...

I clearly do, I replied to your post saying that "I don't care" about
AS/400s and stated clearly what my objectives are (compilation of mod_jk
under hesoteric operating systems is not a bug, not a security hole, but
simply a port of a "component" I'm not involved with - let's make a
difference here).

It's something I won't probably need in the future, and _I_BELIEVE_ doesn't
affect our users community "at large", as frankly AFAIK you're the only one
with one of those little nifty IBM machines I know). But at least I
replied... (Ok, now don't nitpick on the fact that I'm not fixing Win32 bugs
on Win32, I _don't_have_ a Win32 machine anymore, at least since I left Sun
Microsystems, and my MSVC license is not available anymore since those
people testing out builds at the University of Westminster don't work there

On the other hand, how many replies were there to a notification of a _bug_
(a serious security hole -IMO) I found on OS/X? Zero, not even a (as I said)
"since you have OS/X can you volunteer to fix it", or "since I don't have
OSX I don't care about it"... none, nada, nihil, nothing...

Now I'm wondering... What would have happened if I reported the same bug for
Tomcat 3.3? :) :) :) :)
