This explains a lot.  With no notification of failures, the Avalon 
Community have been moving along in ignorant bliss (relative to the 
James Commnity).  Over the last few days that has been discussion 
concerning inconsitencies in Cornerstone jar brough about by some recent 
testing I've been doing of James using the Avalon CVS builds of 
Cornerstone. With gump working we would have spotted the issue months ago.

Getting this back in place would be really good becuse you can validate 
that the Avalon Community are not braking anything as a result of 
maintainance and service development.

Its also out-of-date relative some restructuring that took place of the 
Excalibur project.

Pete the right person to talk to - he knows this stuff inside out.
