Hi list,

I am a long-time user of XMLBeans, most of the time as part of the BPELUnit project. There is no replacement to XMLBeans because in contrast to JAXB if preserves namespace declarations so you e.g. read and write XML document that contain XPath expressions (e.g. BPEL, BPMN2, ...).

Although I know XMLBeans only from the user perspective, I would contribute to it, which includes learning more of its internals, apply the outstanding patches, test them and so on.

As far as I understand the Apache rules a project needs to have a working PMC. This means at least 3 people (for substitution 4 or 5 would be better) which vote on releases. I also would join a new PMC if 3 other would be willing to join me and at least build regular maintainance releases to keep this project alive and reboot its PMC.

I know that many other projects use XMLBeans, e.g. Apache Camel, Apache CXX Apache ODE, ... and many non-Apache projects, too. So I hope that we can find enough interested people to keep this project alive.

If you are one of them, please reply to this list. If we are enough people, I would try to talk to the Apache Foundation.
