I am the main developer of PDFBox, an open source(BSD) PDF library.
FOP contains PDF library functionality(specifically classes in
org.apache.fop.pdf.*) and PDFBox is a PDF library. Because they do
very similar things they contain a lot of overlapping code, but the
package in FOP has some features that PDFBox does not and PDFBox has
some features that the FOP pdf package does not.
I propose that classes in FOP's package be 'merged' into the PDFBox
library and FOP utilize PDFBox for PDF functionality.
Thank you for your interest, Ben. Although I don't speak for
everyone, it does look intriguing to me. You may want to clarify how
you envision PDFBox will be licensed (would this be a software
license grant?). I don't know the details on the BSD license.
Also, I assume you would provide a software license grant and fill
out a CLA.
