Subject RE: Proposal for Lenya
Date Mon, 24 Feb 2003 14:11:40 GMT
Good morning folks,

Will Lenya focus solely on 'massively scalable' project needs?

Is there any interest to have it deal with small, static (50-200 pages - not
including print friendlies) projects? If so, would it use something like
Forrest's site.xml?

I would defintitely be interested in following the project, but I personally
have no /current/ need for something focusing only on the 'massively scalable'
at the expense of flexibility for smaller projects.


p.s. congrats to the Wyona people for getting their project to this stage in the
Apache infrastructure!
