Subject Re: (BEANUTILS-180-BETA) Access/configuration of PropertyUtilsBean caches
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2008 08:26:40 GMT
Hi Aaron,

This is the right list, and your suggestion makes good sense.

Beanutils is a fairly quiet project (though not dead). There are a
couple of people who work on it regularly, and I'm sure there will be an
answer from them. I'm a little surprised they haven't responded already,
but perhaps they are on holiday or busy on an urgent work project, or

Contacting the email list first is good practice. However as there has
been no response, I suggest creating an enhancement entry in the commons
JIRA issue-tracker. Then ping this list with a reminder every couple of
days. If none of the regular beanutils maintainers respond within a week
or so, then I am sure someone (maybe me) will review and commit your patch.
