Subject Re: [DISCUSS} HornetQ & ActiveMQ's next generation
Date Fri, 27 Mar 2015 15:28:55 GMT
Everything you mentioned, all the code changes e.g. "merge good stuff 
from 5.x into the code donation",  can very well be done in the 
incubator. The discussion I am trying to have is about the *community*, 
core value of the "Apache Way". The sooner that is understood the better.
