I did not mean 'volunteers' for contributing, but for the maintenance
:-) I personally do not expect any further development: it already works
and that is all we need.

Note that it is possible it will never be needed by anyone. I have
already said I do not know of any existing XSLT filter that uses XSLT
2.0. But there was demand for it back in OO.o times and it was one of
the reasons for switch from xerces to saxon. Because I cannot prove such
filter does not exist, I did not just drop the code, but put it into an
extension, so we do not inconvenience people needlessly. I would not do
that if I expected it is going to need a lot of effort, but that is not
the case.
