This is my OK.  I assume the rest of the Apache xml community is happy with
you representing Xalan... if not they can raise an objection.

Scott P: Have you heard anything from someone else at Apache yet?  I'm just
curious if the press@apache.org address got you any response.  Since it is
an all-volunteer organization, you may not get an 'official' response from
the ASF, since I'm not sure about their policies on awards and such, nor
may they have time to work on this issue.  I can state that as an official
committer to xml-xalan I can certainly accept the award on behalf of the
community of developers who work on Xalan.

Scott B.: As an ASF member and an xml.apache.org PMC (Project Management
Committe) member, could you give me your 'official' blessing to accept this

It's OK with us if you represent Xalan, but I think we need an official OK.
If you want, I suggest contacting whoever is in charge of this sort of
thing and volunteer. Let me know.

Scott - many thanks for the award!
As a long-time committer on xml-xalan I'd like to volunteer myself to
represent Xalan at JavaOne, especially since I'm already planning to be

Disclaimer: I cannot speak officially on behalf of the ASF or Apache, and
apologize in advance if someone from the ASF press office or the like would
like to make an official statment or send an ASF member as a
representative.  I'd love to represent the Xalan-Java community for this
award, but if someone 'official' at Apache wants to address this instead
just let me know.
