Exactly why can't you do this in excalibur? Usually when I find a bug in a 
library I drop a note on mailing list or into bugzilla and it gets fixed. I 
am not sure why this process seems to offend so many people or why people 
believe they have to have direct access to CVS repos to fix anything.

If you have ever had *any* problem contributing to it then tell me and I will 
fix it. However you have never indicated any problem and as far as I am aware 
of never made any attempt to contribute.

No but classloaders are. I get sick of explaining to people why 
junit/jdepend/other jars need to be placed inside ant/lib for the task to 
work and so forth.
