Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Scala components in ASF Camel
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2013 01:07:08 GMT

Scala is hot, I'm willing to help the Scala related components in Apache camel repository.
Once we have more Scala components, we could attract more Scala developers :)

BTW, it doesn't spend us lots of time to maintain the camel-scala component.  

As Scala has some back compatible issue, I think we can consider to create a sub project in
camel which can host the Scala related components, and we do the release as the more Scala
project does. That could be a part of work in our Camel 3.0 plan.

Any thought?
