Those of you that have been involved
with WTP for a long time, will recall long ago, for the first year or so,

code there split off and joined the Data Tools Platform (DTP) project.
The last release of webtools.datatools was long ago, as part of WTP 1.5.5.
But, occasionally there are still requests
for patches for that old release, so we would prefer not to archive the
project, yet. If not obvious, any new work is or would be done in the DTP

Carl, as the only other committer, why

not planning to do anything new ... just putting on paper what reflects
