They've been around longer than a year. I contacted them a little over
two years ago to see what was up and they got rather huffy when I
suggested what Maven was trying to do. They had even less around at that
point but look at what they have now: 20 documents describing what they
want to do and they've been around for 2 years and is there anything
that incorporates their ideas in a working piece of software? No.

So really, who cares about CJAN. The spec that goes defacto is the one
manifest in the mechanism used by the most people. Unless of course SUN
steps in at some point and tries to propose a JSR which wouldn't
surprise me at all.
