Subject I'm lost...could we have more README files?
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2006 10:29:56 GMT
Hi devs,

I've been trying to keep up with what's happening in the trunk, without 
being able to invest continuous time here currently, and I must admit 
that I'm lost in several areas.

IMHO it's currently hard to find how to try out the following 
features/run modes/stuff:

-Build with Maven
-Blocks mode
-JMX features
-Development vs. deployment mode (IIRC Carsten has implemented 
something cool with properties)
-OSGI mode
-I might have forgotten other exciting stuff

Would it be possible for people working in these areas to create short 
README files in the trunk, and keep them up to date when something 
happens in that area?

There's already README.osgi, we could have README.maven, README.jmx, 
README.blockmode, etc..

My goal is to allow any of us to experiment with these new features 
even if they haven't followed them closely, by finding the necessary 
information, links, status etc. in one place.

So, I'd be thankful if people who work in these areas could keep us up 
to date in this way, so that we can share the excitment about these new 

I know this ultimately belongs to some docs, but as these things are 
still evolving it's much easier to keep a single file up to date per 
feature/mode. If docs are here already, just put an link to them in the 
README file.

Thanks for listening ;-)
