Subject Re: Renaming packages to org.apache.brooklyn
Date Tue, 21 Jul 2015 12:36:50 GMT
So far, I have found that the Apidoc REST links have changed, but the rest of 
the URLs remained the same. Maybe issue #3 is not a real problem, and I was 
mislead by a test case.

Updated PR #755. All tests pass.
