Yeah, I miss knowing the schedule ;-)

Don't worry too much, I'm on vacation at the moment. Finding OSS related 
jobs is quite hard, OTOH (but I don't think this will surprise anyone :) ).

The idea is that one cannot claim to implement a spec which doesn't 
exist yet. I don't know what the contract actually says (I suppose I

Tomcat 5 anytime soon if we keep our current feature additions plan, so 
it doesn't matter much.
