Well a few people are waiting for a proper release to do stuff. However I am 
am writing "J2EE" scheduler based on myrmidon. About 80% done but I may strip 
the container bit out and reuse Quartz (on sourceforge) and just use myrmidon 
for actual job execution.

Another group I know is using it to write a test framework for a pre-J2EE 
"enterprise" system. Basically sets of custom tasks to generate database 
data, execute methods on server and query state on server and then compare 
expected to actual results (where state == actuall messages that go across 
wire + state of database + state of objects in memory).

Someone is also using it to do something with CORBA. Something to do with a 
collaboration framework - NFI what that means though.

Another company is doing distributed installs and updates + pre-packaged 
installshield type apps with a myrmidon core. This is something I originally 
setup ages ago but they continued developing it.

The big drawcard is basically the ease by which custom services can be added 
to system and accessed from tasks.

alpha it is ;)

Well I will try to document how I originally thought they would work and then 
we can compare and update to how they "actually" work now :)
