one of the outstanding big merges was pulling the BeKaffe source back
into the kaffe.org main tree. I've browsed the kaffe.org mailing list
archives, and according to
Tomaso> It won't require great changes to the current CVS source base,
Tomaso> we have been a nice project living in separate BeOS directories :-)
Tomaso> The only shared changes that come to mind is the addition of two

Judging by http://www.kaffe.org/pipermail/kaffe/2001-June/026345.html
the developers have met cleanroom conditions and stayed away from Sun's
sources, which makes a merge possible.
Off list, I had a conversation going with Bernd T. Korz, from YellowTab.
They would be interested in seing a current version of kaffe on their
platform. Given that a patch exists  to allow open office builds to
use kaffe, and they want to port openoffice to their platform, kaffe
could help bring OpenOffice to Zeta faster.
So my question is quite simple: are there any BeKaffe developers left
who would be interested in the merge, or could assist in some way?
