Similarly, be happy to explore changing the build system to Maven so that you can then automatically pull in dependencies from j3d/AV3D etc, particularly as I'm now up and running with JOGL 2 code, so we dont have to worry about managing our own really really old codebase and compiling platform-specific dependencies.

good news about your JOGL 2 progress, sounds great!  we've been similarly intrigued by possibilities there, both github and maven.

found one potential blocker so far, but not experienced enough to be sure about it...

it appears that the github pricing policy costs money to operate an organizational repository


Is this correct?  Might be a problem with a $25/month expense for Web3D Consortium, it could block development if a payment problem emerged.

all the best, Don
