This is a little long, but I would really appreciate it if you could bear with

I am working on a small open-source email-oriented project (JFetch: The project has been in hibernation for a
while since I have not been able to devote enough time to it. I had
self-written mailbox support earlier, and wanted to replace it with a mailbox
provider. At that time the mbox-provider package was being maintained along
with the knife package at I recently went to the site and found out
that it is now a part of the GNU Classpathx project. This is really a great
thing and gives the project the visibility it needs.

Since there was no release of the project available, I started out with an
interim release provided on the dog home page, but found some problems with
it. Mainly, the provider does not create a mailbox if it doesnt exist.
Thinking that it may have been solved in the current version; I checkedout the
tree through CVS, but unfortunately I have not had a good experience with it.
There was no ant-build file to build the package unlike the interim release.
There are some dependencies (gnu.text.*) which are not checked into the CVS;
hence the IMAP provider does not compile. 

I have the following questions and would really be grateful if someone could
help me with them.

What is the status of the classpathx-javamail project?

I would like to send a build.xml file for inclusion and also the small fix for
the above mentioned problem. Who should I submit patches for acceptance to?

I would also like to help in any other way that I can. Please let me know if
there are some areas where I may be able to contribute.

Thanks for the patience.
