Hmmm, I must have missed your original post regarding this issue.  Could
you give some reasons?  I'm not fully convinced what the right solution
is in keeping trees in sync with external source code.

The current approach for Xerces is to sync it manually on a mostly
irregular schedule.  With Crimson, it does a fully automatic sync from
xml-commons for each build.  Another option would be a "semi-automatic"
mode which would do the sync on demand.  For example, there would be a
"sync-sax" target in the Xerces build.xml file which would perform the
sync only on demand from xml-commons.

Ideally, the SAX bugs would be fixed in the SAX repository on
sourceforge.net and we would just be taking released versions of the SAX
code.

Comments?
