CVS is still not back up, but I've been able to update the HiveMind home page for the first time in months.
I expect the CVS to be brought back soon, at which point Prashant and I will submit an updated proposal for HiveMind to join the Jakarta project at Apache.
Meanwhile, my frustration with Maven has been growing. I'll probably bite the bullet in convert from Maven to Ant 1.6 + Forrest soon. Perhaps Erik will help?
