Dear Roberto, I'm only a "consumer" of open source projects, so I have a very little working knowledge about the rules of Sourceforge and the habits of managing open source projects, but ... .. I think that if you and your group want start working on tn5250j there's no need to wait : make a fork(), publish it on a public accessible subversion server, inform the tn5250j* group about your plans, milestones and releases and, In My Humble Opinion, things will magically happens.
BTW, I'm very interested on tn5250j in order to replace a battery of 5250 java screen scraping engines ... http://www.rds-software.com/ita/Caratteristiche%20di%20Host2web.pdf So my 2 (Euro) cents : don't hold your breath, "cvs get" the current release, make a svn vendor branch, synch it with your edition and republish it somewhere.
