They are trying to get to API compatibility with 3.2 (
- interestingly, they want to become a jakarta sandbox project...)
They have just moved to subversion on the 12th - I was having problems getting access to cvs.

Can we improve upon the sf project with the aim to import rather than restarting?

These discussions should happen on a wiki or a forum.  I shall go link this thread to the
