With proper care it is always possible to restructure
the distribution so that unnecessary classes are not
included.  There are Ascii, PCL and PDF renderers in FOP
- each can be in a separate jar file with no compile-time
dependencies from the main jar, so if you don't use some
format, drop the jar and be happy.  Same applies to other
included jars, like batik and logkit - they are not 
necessarily needed for everybody.

Unfortunately, I don't have free time to volunteer to do
this sort of decoupling of FOP subsystems, nor do I have
a pressing need for it.

My unofficial vote for merging JFor with FOP is:  +1

Can I just appeal for some limitation on the size of the JAR files required?

Not all java is server side and downloads sizes matter a lot!

Although I am not a committer, I would like to give following
unofficial vote: 1+;

[...snip...]
So, here it is, please vote on the following question:

would you like to accept jfor code and give Bertand Delacretaz committer
status in order to perform the merging on the FOP code following the
technical directions that the FOP dev community will find more
appropriate?

I remind that only people with committer status are entitled to place a
binding vote, but I suggest everybody on this list to express their vote
and, in case of negative vote, explain their reasons so that we can
properly deal with them.

Thanks to all.

Stefano.

P.S. Sorry for the formality, people but this is legal stuff so I'm
required to wear my ASF member hat :)
