I was just reading a tasty morsel ( http://jira.sakaiproject.org/jira/browse/SAK-12861 ) posted by the esteemed Ray Davis.
It inspired me to mutter: "Heck I have all that stuff laying around here, we use it every day!" and then to look for the Sakai release Roadmap - "...just when are we thinking 2.6 will be freezing? Perhaps I can contribute this stuff in on behalf of Stanford?"
I dash off to the Sakai project site to find out. I don't find out. It must be there.
