Subject Re: [VOTE] Axis2 as TLP
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2008 06:23:51 GMT

I'm voting -1 not because of the actual action of creating a TLP for Axis2 
but rather because of the process by which this discussion has ensued. The 
discussion has been unpleasant and downright anti-social / anti-community 
style and we appear to be pushing forward to fix some problem that is 
purportedly going to get fixed by this action without any real basis for 
such belief.

I also agree with Chinthaka about keeping Axiom & Neethi too as part of 
the TLP - being part of the TLP has no implication on usage in other 
projects etc. and I want it kept together because that's where the core 
community that developed those and maintain those live.

So, a disappointed -1 from me (binding).
