Subject [VOTE] green light for flattening repo structure in trunk
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2006 13:52:56 GMT
In line of the ongoing M10N process I would like to call a vote for
starting the work to flatten the trunk repo structure.

Main points to note :

> It makes it much easier to manage, maintain and oversee the maven build
> process. The experiment was very positive, you can still check out the
> flat layout in the whiteboard and play around with it [2]. The benefits
> towards componentisation are well known and accepted by everyone. In
> short, i don't see any reason to keep the old structure.

Please cast your votes :

[ ] flatten the structure and pave the way for a 2.2 release
