Subject Re: <nudge>Re: [VOTE] Release commons math 1.1
Date Thu, 08 Dec 2005 01:52:13 GMT
P.S. Sorry it wasn't my intention to be -ve, I checked out math hoping to
vote +1. One thing I meant to mention - I was impressed with the Math User
Guide and I think it raises the bar for other components :-)
