Subject current status of rhino+cont issue
Date Wed, 05 Nov 2003 08:53:04 GMT
Hi all,

I just wanted to quickly brief you about my talks with some board peeps 
so far on this matter + my personal thoughts. Some of this can be 
followed on the licensing list for those whose subscription is moderated 

Looking at the situation, I think the impasse is much bigger than it 
seems at first sight. While Chris' fork is perfectly legal, integrating 
the source into Cocoon CVS is a different thing:

- it is not in the interest of the Cocoon TLP to host a Javascript 
engine implementation - and I think the ASF board has a perfectly good 
point there
- we can not simply relicense Chris' fork without a proper donation and 
transfer from the Mozilla peeps (which might or might not work out)
- Roy & Brian insist on exploring all possible options to remerge the 
changes into the proper Rhino codebase
- if we succeed at this, we could explore the possibility of moving 
rhino++ (with our continuations stuff added to the 'real' codebase) from to ASF (but not to Cocoon) - which might attract a community 
and could be a good thing for rhino itself

I'm busy ATM, but will report back if I have more news.
