Subject RE: Removing DELI
Date Fri, 24 Sep 2004 08:58:10 GMT
Hi Steven,

No not at all, legal issues are fine, I have signed a CLA, this is all
OK with HP etc.

It's just that I don't use Cocoon at all in my current work, and things
- particularly directory layouts - change fast so as I have not been
able to maintain things they seem to end up broken. The recent change to
subversion in particular means I have lots of catching up to do. 

With Cocoon, making an effective contribution really requires monitoring
the commit, dev and users list. I never monitored the commit list at
all, and its only because I've been working with Stefano on another
project thay I recently realised that I was missing a lot of information
as a result. I don't really have time to monitor all these lists at the

Instead the way I would prefer to work is if people let me know if there
is a problem, then I can create a patch to contribute? I've been looking
at the contrib tips and it says to prepare cvs diff patches and put them
in Bugzilla, but I guess that means SVN ones now?

Anyway the good news is I have integrated the latest version of DELI
(x0209404) that uses the latest Jena version (2.1) into a version of
Cocoon 2.1.5, so I can prepare a patch for this, assuming you are still
interested in having this component in Cocoon?

If this is because of legal issues (IP, the new Apache license, CLA),
please let us know about them - heving patches committed by others won't
make these go away.
