Subject RE: [VOTE] Promote Email to Commons Proper
Date Tue, 16 Nov 2004 08:41:27 GMT
ah, now I read the rest,

well doing such a component is a nice
thing. since unit-tests for [email]
are a plus.

well I don't know how to promote
such a component to sandbox, perhaps
eric knows more?

I guess must post some code,
that you will push to Jakarta Commons
Sandbox. After that, there will be 
a vote for adding it to Sandbox?

Just my personal thoughts.
Since I haven't started an own
project in ASF/Jakarta.

With MyFaces (JSF-Implementation) it was
different, we had code in
Asked the incubator-folks.
After that we droped LGPL and used Apache2.0

Then the way was ready to start in ASF.
Incubator-folks voted us to be on board.
