Subject Re: Contributing Scomp Component (was Contributing Stomp Component)
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2013 00:51:10 GMT
Putting the components into Apache Camel umbral could save some work of contributor when we
release the Camel. We add the camel-extra due to the license issue only. It is hard to say
no for the contributing to Apache Camel if the component has the ASF license already. That
is way we have more then one hundred components today.

Current the hard part is the Stomp Component is written with Scala, as we have the camel-scala,
I don't think why we can not host the camel-stomp component except few people know how to
maintain it. I think few people know about jclouds, hl7,redis … but we are open mind to
host these components.
