A rousing round of +1's for Sam's volunteer efforts to setup and maintain
this very useful system!

Waaait a second - writing documentation? Are we sure this is the real Sam
Ruby?  8-)   I was about to just dive into the code to setup Gump on my
machine finally next week - now I guess I can just wait to read the novel!

Re: Ant jars: Although I think Xalan will continue to keep a checked-in
ant.jar in it's CVS as a convenience to first-time users, I support
'suggesting' that all projects strive to ensure their builds run
sucessfully with both user-installed copies of Ant and with the latest
versions of Ant.

Re: DOM3 interfaces: those interested in xml-commons might want to discuss
when/how/where we should check these interfaces in over there (and the
important question, when other projects will start using xml-commons to get
DOM/SAX/JAXP sources, to follow in Crimson's wake)
