Subject AW: AW: [C2] sitemap editor
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2001 08:40:28 GMT
I suggest we go for whatever solution allows us to get development of tools
such as the sitemap editor moving quickly. One of the important factors that
will decide the success of Cocoon in the long run will be the availability
of tools.

So either include it in the Cocoon CVS or go for sourceforge. I think that
it would be best to go for Cocoon CVS as this would allow Cocoon to become a
"complete" package (building up tools as we go along) and also make sure the
tools stay in sync with Cocoon (which may be more difficult if they are on

Also - the developers would probably be the same as those currently working
on Cocoon (or come from the same groups) - At least they would in our case

I suppose sourceforge is as good as an option for a new project, if only to
find out whether it is able to gather a developer community around it. lists a lot of related
projects, most of them not hosted by the Apache Foundation - the same is
true for Comanche ( which is
something like the smgui equivalent for the Apache httpd.

Perhaps the administrative burden of going through PMC approval would be too
much for something which is currently a one-mans-effort.
