I use mostly vfs 1.0 in several projects (ServiceMix in the servicemix-vfs component, ACE/AutoDeploy,
I would like to contribute to VFS. I have some patches already available (around default FilesystemManager
behavior and on the maven build).

I came into VFS after 2.0 was started. I've done quite a bit of work, mostly around fixing
the build and integrating webdav support using Jackrabbit.  There are still a large number
of Jira issues that I simply don't have the time to look at . I've applied patches where they
were provided and I could verify that they would work.  As far as I can tell, 2.0 is pretty
stable.  I've attempted to start a release a couple of times but managed to forget my password
for my code signing key, which makes it difficult to actually do a release.  I guess I'll
have to generate a new key.

As for accepting new code, we are pretty open to contributions as long as they can use the
Apache license and they are contributed under a CLA or software grant (see
It would be best if they code actually came with people who would continue to work on it and
help maintain it, as well as help with the existing code base.

 Is there likely going to be another release soon?  We have a data transfer project right
now requiring the use VFS.  The version we're using was the trunk check out from early 2009.
It would be good to get an updated and stable release to work with.
