My gut feel here is that we gain a lot more by merging the work done here
into ESAPI. CSRFGuard is and has been a great project, but as it stands -
unmaintained right now (although it is a very simple project, with a very
low level of maintenance) it seems to me that a lot of traction and momentum
could be gained for the code by merging with the ESAPI project which is one
of the more active OWASP Projects AFAIK.

This is really just my $0.02 and I don't want to discount the work that has
been done on CSRF-Guard. As I stated it is a great project and I personally
have used it in 3 projects succesfully, but I also think that as such a
small project it seems to be an easy one to forget about in the grand scheme
of things.

I'm taking a survey of folks who have used CSRFGuard. In particular, I would
like to understand any potential modifications CSRFGuard users have had  to
make in order to implement it successfully for their website. I'd also like
to hear of any success stories of using CSRFGuard out of the box.
Any feedback regarding this matter is greatly appreciated.
