jython-dev@... is the best place for these sorts of
quieries, since there are actually several active developers lately,
and if you look at Jython-dev or jython-checkins@...

pretty good progress towards a beta release, though I can't say
exactly when it will happen. We are also talking about reviving
snapshot releases, which should help.
