Subject RE: Newbie contributor wannabe - WebLogic JSP Compiler
Date Mon, 07 Jul 2003 21:02:22 GMT
Well, from the Ant 1.5.3 online manual:

"This works only on weblogic 4.5.1"

Many of us have gone way past WebLogic 4.5.1. Seeing as
this patch handles 6.1, 7.0, and 8.1, I would assume it
would be desired by many. 

As to the process for submitting changes, please read  

http://jakarta.apache.org/site/getinvolved.html

  especially

http://jakarta.apache.org/site/source.html#Patches

The bottom line of all this reading is that you don't
make a change directly. You open a Bugzilla to document
the proposed patch, and when committers have time to look
at it, they will evaluate your proposal. If accepted, they
will commit your patch, perhaps with some changes.

If you contribute regularly, you could end up being
nominated by the existing committers to become a new
committer.

Hmm, what is the problem with the current WebLogic JSP Compiler Ant Task?
