To me, this "sandbox" that you guys are talking about is essentially
equivalent to a JIRA issue, and attaching patch files there. JIRA is a
pretty easy way of sharing code, asking for comments/reviews/updates, etc.,
before it gets into the sources (i.e., the trunk). It also is a way for us
to track design discussions, and tie them to actual contributions into the

Sure, I hear ya, and maybe I'm adopting too strict an interpretation of CM.
I'm not against moving forward with the creation of this "sandbox" area, and
certainly not against moving forward with development of code in general for
the project.

I am going to take a look at TIKA-7 today or tomorrow, and I'll get back to
you guys with my comments on it, and perhaps we can talk a bit about the
overall design of the Tika parsing architecture at that time.
