Yes and no :) As I said, we three are committed to the project and we
now the codebase; obviously Charles knows it best. So, whenever
something needs to be done, I would say that one of us will be able to
do it.

Sanselan has the "problem" of being too good for what it does, so there
is rarely a need for doing something. That's one of the main reasons why
there haven't been any commits. Look at commons-lang or one of the other
libs, I think they are in a similar state - if you neglect the move to
Java5, what really needs to be done there?
The other problem is that Charles is really quick in responding and
doing stuff :) So before the others get a chance to do something, it's
already done by Charles usually. We already discussd this and Charles
slowed down :)
