Hi Sonya

First, thank you for your reaction.

1. Tags

You can see the project has 46 tags on http://java.net/projects/jdic/sources/svn/show/tags
Why is the project home page showing "Tags: None" ?

2. Downloads

The archives were lost?? Wow....

However, with the tags, you can regenerate the tarballs.

By the way, several project hosting sites, like github, generate the tarballs automatically from tags. That would be a nice feature to have.

You can also do that manually. Example for version 0.2.2:
$ svn co https://svn.java.net/svn/jdic~svn/tags/RELEASE_0_2_2
$ mv RELEASE_0_2_2 jdic-0.2.2
$ tar cvfz jdic_0.2.2.tar.gz jdic-0.2.2/

You can do that yourself, it's probably a matter of an hour work.

You could also download the last version from trusted sources like:
http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/libj/libjdic-java/libjdic-java_0....

I'm willing to help, if nobody wants to fix that problem.
But then I'll need access, probably high level.
The developer mailing list has 2 messages this year, beside mine: The download problem was noticed in June in the mailing list, to which I'm sure they are subscribed. The problem still is not fixed. If suspect the admins are in deep hibernation, or missing in action. If you don't organize things, they won't fix by themselves.
