As you can see the timetable has slipped a bit!  However, there doesn't seem to be a 
lot to go in this issue (just an entry for
lucene + whatever I write to summarise general@) and I was wondering whether it was 
worth bothering with.  I realise this is to be
expected with the Christmas / New Year but there has been a general decline in content 
volume over the months and I was wondering
whether there was something that should be done to address this.  A number of thoughts 
have been mentioned by various people and I'd
be interested to hear opinions:

Reduce the frequency - every 2 months has been suggested before.
Format revamp - no idea how but ideas welcome - perhaps new blood is required?
Widen the scope - ant and Avalon have grown up to be (at least partially) outside the 
jakarta scope, should we include
xml.apache.org? and it's children? maybe just a simple *.apache.org? (with some 
appropriate rename)
Maybe its fine as it is?

Thanks,

Rob
