Sam, this is an open source project. The success of an open source
project is defined by how successful the community is - there is
*no* "us" users vs. "them" developers as your note appears to imply.
The users are part of the community - in fact that's a critical part
of making successful open source projects IMO.

The note from Susantha to you asking for the guidelines was a 
request for help. That's very typical of Apache open source 
projects; maybe you are not familar with that much and expected
a "group" who are responsible for servicing the request of users.
Well, that's not the way it works.

Yes there have been some delays in committing some of the patches.
This project is still very young and we can definitely use more
committers. There are 24 outstanding items in this project right
now - that may seem very high to you, but note that Axis/Java has
206 right now. 

I just looked at Jira and there are indeed several patches you've
submitted. Would you be interested in becoming a committer? I'll
be happy to submit your name for a vote.
