Subject Re: Recognition of contributions made to Axis2/C
Date Tue, 25 Mar 2008 18:42:36 GMT
Hello Axis2/C Development Team.

First of all I would like to thank-you for your product, Apache Axis2/C.
It is a high quality product created by developers who are
knowledgeable, friendly and responsive to their user community.  I would
like to thank-you for your recognition but would like to make a quick
statement in response.  

I have been a champion of the Axis products within our company for both
the Java and C/C++ sides of the technology spectrum, for both Axis and
Axis2.  However, I do not wish to take the credit for the API
documentation requests and other suggestions that I emailed to the
Axis2/C team previously.  In this case I was simply the
spokesperson/messenger for our team of dedicated C/C++ developers.
These suggestions and input were actually discovered and documented by a
specific member of our team by the name of Clifford Thompson (cthompso
at mdacorporation dot com).  I would to propose the replacement of my
name of the Axis2/C contributors list with Clifford's name. I do not
wish to take credit for the hard work of someone else.

Thank-you for your time and dedication to this extremely useful and
valuable product.
