Matt Hall commented on COLLECTIONS-110:

Hi everyone,

I'm one of the co-authors/porters of the 2nd project mentioned here (
Stephen Kestle was kind enough to let us know this discussion was taking place over here so
I thought I'd let you know what the status of our project is:

- The port was against version 3.1 of collections
- It is a complete port and passes all test cases
- We tried to change as little as possible from the original Collections to remain as compatible
as possible
- We use it daily and it's proven to be very useful/reliable

There are no doubt numerous places where people will want to either strengthen or relax the
typing we've put in place. However, we feel perhaps the best course of action is to first
get the project up to 3.2 feature compliance, then allow the normal Apache development process
start to take care of the details.

We've stated it before on the commons mailing lists, we'd be open to moving the project over
to the Apache sandbox, or perhaps making it an official, slightly seperate project at this

It certainly doesn't seem to make sense for the whole process to be restarted over here.
