Subject RE: xml namespace support in ant2
Date Thu, 05 Sep 2002 16:04:54 GMT
You and Costin have done quite of bit of work on the proposals and patches
you have contributed, and some of them I like quite a bit and wish they make
it to Ant proper ASAP, but the silence about all this new code from other
Ant committers is deafening... Note a single significant comment, not a
single question or enhancement/change discussion, nothing in the open I can
remember beside you and Costin.

The HEAD is still mostly equivalent to the 1.5 BRANCH, except for the
top-level tasks maybe. You can keep on pilling on these great patches of
yours, but it's not doing much good if nothing happens with them. The people
who are willing to assemble a version of Ant from CVS and the patches in
Bugzila are not that many!

So what's next? I'm still mostly ignorant of the 'rules' of OSS, so maybe
it's normal, but the current status quo is frustrating to me. --DD

There is a "namespace" feature working on properties in /proposal/embed, 
and also a SAX2 ProjectHelper.
What needs to be still defined is just how to use namespaces; good you 
brought the point to the attention :-)
