Subject RE: [PATCH] - PropertyUtils - bug 5639
Date Mon, 07 Jan 2002 20:58:34 GMT
Sorry it took that long.  We have always said 'just keep nagging', and
you did.  Granted, we both would have been better off it it happened
sooner rather than later, but later is better than not at all.  Not that
when we go and look at what you did, we also had to address set (your
patch was for get), and also needed to code unit tests.  That kind of
effort takes a little more time than simply reviewing a patch and
committing it.

I look forward to your next contribution.

Cheers,
Scott Sanders
