It looks like Dave Brownell is no longer actively maintaining SAX.  I did 
exchange initial e-mails with Norm, but have not followed up further, partly 
because of pressing committments and partly because I'm not sure if I still 
have my old SourceForge password.  I can take over as a caretaker maintainer 
for SAX again for a while, but I'm afraid that my response times might not 
be brilliantly fast right now because I have a lot going on.

I sympathize with the fact that the JSR 206 deadline is pressing, but let's 
shift the focus to SAX itself, since many of us (including me) have never 
looked at Sun's Java XML APIs.  Perhaps Norm could post a short list of 
changes that he believes are necessary for SAX2 to support XML 1.1 and 
Namespaces 1.1 properly.  We can discuss them for a few days, and then 
consider some code and documentation changes for SAX itself.

All the best,
