Subject RE: [net] [vote] Release Commons-Net 1.2
Date Mon, 29 Mar 2004 05:25:59 GMT
WRT http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/net/

Shouldn't the heading "Jakarta Commons/Net" probably just be "Jakarta
Commons Net"?

Also that whole paragraph could use some formatting, for example a
bullet list of features.
