Subject Re: [general] Book time - Pro Jakarta Commons
Date Sat, 06 Mar 2004 21:43:27 GMT
i think that struts ended up moving the links to resources such as 
books offsite ( 
AIUI the issue was mainly that having the articles and books linked 
from the official site was a kind of official endorsement. i also 
recall that the issue of links on the vendors page has caused heated 
discussions on the general list in the past.  a community/resources 
project on sourceforge would also have a lower barrier to participation 
so maybe it's one thing we should at least consider.

as far as the news goes, book and articles links have appeared in the 
past but only very infrequently. i'm not aware of any pmc policy about 
the content of news. so i suspect that it would escape a veto. speaking 
purely personally, i'd think carefully before committing news which 
some people may take as an endorsement of a particular commercial 
product. i think that links to new books and articles on jakarta is 
useful but tacit endorsements of particular products is a little bit of 
a sensitive subject. maybe raising this subject on general would be a 
good idea.
