Hi Steve,

I can take ownership for the DB2Dialects mentioned and the WS lookups. Are
there specific test cases for the WS lookups in the test suite ?

Simply listing them on a website page does not have nearly the effect
them to another jar has.  In terms of dialects, this is already the case
in fact has been for over 2 years.  And yet, it takes the mere suggestion
removal to a seperate jar to get any type of reponse.

Honestly, what I really want is some ownership.  Trust me, I'd rather not
separate these; I'd much rather have individuals take responsiblity for
maintaining each of these pieces.
