My future plan for jdom.org is to host it on the Tigris framework
(tigris.org). This open source framework is used and partially
developed by my new company Collab.Net to host prominent open source
sites such as NetBeans.org (and many more though I'm not sure which are
officially unannounced so I'll keep my mouth shut). Tigris provides all
the features you expect for an open source project (cvs, cvs check-in
announcements, ezmlm lists, eyebrowse mail archives, bugzilla bug
tracking (being replaced by the servlet-based scarab), web-based viewing
of code, etc), all integrated well together with a convenient web-based
front end for managing the project. For example, you can add a user to
CVS, the mailing lists, the bug database, and so on all at once.
Collab.Net has already provided a machine and net connection for
jdom.org. I'm now waiting for the next Tigris release to become
available and stable, then I'm going to start testing things out.
What this means is that unless Jools feels like experimenting with the
web based code view system, it's not a good use of his time to set it
