Apache owns the copyright so it "owns" the project, sort of. On the
other side it's the committers who run the project. With no active
committers the project obviously can't go forward. Let's hope that
Vincent and/or Thomas can come back into the game soon. When Cameron
McCormack gets his account things can also start to get better, I hope.

Furthermore it's also the community around Batik (read: not only the
committers) that can help in this project. Those who care about the
project need to work together to revive it. Everyone has the right to
make proposals, to express their opinion. Obviously, without active
committers who actually manage the project this is difficult. But this
shouldn't stop anyone on improving the codebase and place patches.
That's the best way to show that you care and it's what the project
needs most. And I'm sure we can find a way to recruit new committers
even if there are no active committers (via the PMC). If Batik appears
dead (which, fortunately, it isn't) you can always address the XML PMC
(general@xml.apache.org or pmc@xml.apache.org) with any concerns.
