There have been discussions on the PMC lists; mainly the problem is 
about having a project look like and act like a normal Apache project, 
while in fact it's not. It's *becoming* an Apache Project, but it might 
as well fail. This has to be made very clear for the developers that 
help it and for our users.

I'm not advocating changes to the current projects. I'm advocating a 
different way of handling the next one, XMLBeans.

Nope. If it does, it shouldn't.

Use what you prefer for your project, there is no rule to which 
build-document-whatever system you use; just don'├Čt impose it on others.

(Forrest is much more advanced for Documentation BTW)
