Finally picking up speed. I got serious about migrating components from
Batik and FOP over to the new subproject. It is "work in progress" but
from now on always in a usable state. The build is working and I've just
set up a Gump descriptor for Commons.

The plan is still the same as before:

All FOP, Batik and Commons Trunks are pretty stable right now.

Yes: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/xmlgraphics/commons/trunk

The Commons module is not yet a prerequisite to build FOP but will be in
a few minutes. But there will be a xmlgraphics-commons.jar in FOP's lib
directory. OTOH, you will want to look at the sources of Commons because
that's where the stuff interesting for your Folio will eventually end up.

SVN can give you any revision/state from the past.
