Subject Re: Release schedule

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the kind words and the appreciation!

As you know, we won't be able to give a definite schedule for the 2.2 release, and I know
all the active commiters 
currently are very much occupied and under tight schedule with client specific jetspeed projects
of their own.

However, some of us expect to be able to get back to core Jetspeed (and Pluto) development
within 2 weeks and our 
intention is still to get a 2.2 release out this summer.

High priority features on our list which we'll be concentrating on the most are:
- refactoring /replacing the preferences implementation with a *much* easier and better performing
solution
- much improved LDAP security model and mapping like user/role/group attributes retrieval
through LDAP
- continue and complete the Pluto 2.0 core refactoring so it can be used for Jetspeed 2.2
- further expand and improve the maven-2 plugin and custom build configuration options

And there are some other features and improvements we'd like to throw in too, time permitted,
but the above list 
definitely is a must for the 2.2 release in my view.

Of course, this is a major effort and community support and backing (like review, testing,
patches, contributions etc.) 
definitely is very important to us, so any help you and others can provide will be very welcome!

Regards,

Ate
