in again.  I saw that Rahul did some work last week too.

myfaces and don't take all of the existing modules, I'm not sure what that will do to people
have investments in shale.  For example, Ryan Wynn has shared that they have developed a very
large portal (man years of development) using Clay.  That's just one example and I'm sure
there are others that have taken advantage of other parts of shale.

volunteers.   That seems to be a secret to Struts success over the years.  That leads to the
next question, would they all be myfaces commiter anyway and would it just make sense to join

Glad to know that you're planning to be more active in the future, in
the "activity begets activity" vein ( rather than launch into any new
text, let me just point to Hen's notes [1] ).

Also, I don't think we should be calling out releases as last releases
(unless the PMC makes / has made that decision).

I was occupied elsewhere in Apache land for a couple of weeks (and
will be till the weekend), but I want to help with a release from one
of the branches (say, 1_0_X). If this can happen at the year end, I
will have more time.
