Nice!
The backstory with Sun is nice to reread in such a way.

A lot of kudos to Willie Walker and Joanmarie Diggs who I have very positive memories of their mails from the orca mailinglist. And of course all others helping.

Lets hope we, as a community, have learned to keep the bus factor high and thanks and kudos to RedHat for taking the lead.
