From the archives it appears that the discussion on the fop-dev list was about 2 years ago (no apparent refusal though). It is certainly time to revisit.
From the small amount of information I know about iText it would appear to be a more advanced pdf library.
I don't know what the license issues might be.
What sort of joining forces are you proposing?
Please send to the fop-dev list for further discussion.

I'm not familiar with FOP, but I can't help noticing
that people are moving from FOP to iText and vice versa. As original developer of iText, a JAVA-PDF library, I already
proposed you guys at Apache twice to join forces and to combine
both libraries. I now subscribe to this mailing list only to
ask you a third time to reconsider your refusal. Please read these mails from some iText/FOP users:
http://www.mail-archive.com/itext-questions%40lists.sourceforge.net/msg00491 .html Please send your answers to the iText mailing list.
You don't need to subscribe, I will pass them through.
Remark: sorry, but due to the lack of time to read all
my mail as it is, I will now unsubscribe from the FOP
mailing list. kind regards,
