Subject Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: Axis 1.0 RC1 has been released!
Date Fri, 06 Sep 2002 20:19:30 GMT
Kevin,

All help is sorely needed and very very welcome...having said that, my personal opinion is
that
the "JMS Transport" should be post 1.0, simply because none of the comitters have exercised
it. 

Regarding "committer status", it is conferred on individuals...So as soon as a invidual
contribution(s) and commitment become clearly visible, one of the existing committers will
start a
"VOTE" for that individual. 

Looking forward to working with you and your team to reach our common goal - to make Axis
the best
tool for web services.

Thanks,
dims
