Subject Re: [DISCUSS] - Happy 5 years birthday on Camel front page
Date Thu, 05 Jul 2012 09:27:06 GMT
+1!
I would like a blog post such like this!
Also to show how the Camel team and the Camel community grows over the
time, in which areas Camel is used (CERN, ESA, travel services, finance,
...).

Best,
Christian
