From Adrian Crum <adrian.c...@yahoo.com>
Subject Introduction
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 23:10:04 GMT
Hello all. My name is Adrian Crum and I am a PMC member of the Apache Open For Business project
(OFBiz).

Apache OFBiz is an ERP application, and it contains some technologies that would be suitable
for spinning off into stand-alone libraries.

One of those technologies is a Java object type conversion framework. I noticed that Commons
has a dormant Convert sub-project, and I believe that would be a good place for our library.
In other words, I would be interested in adopting the Convert project.

Another technology suitable for spin-off is our Temporal Expression library. You can read
more about that in our Wiki - http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OFBENDUSER/Temporal+Expressions.
I'm not sure where that would fit into the Commons project. I expect it to be developed further
into a complete calendaring code library.

Both of these technologies are written in Java, and they are already using the Apache 2 license.

The Apache OFBiz developer community supports my efforts to spin off these technologies, and
some in the community would likely join any new projects they create.

I would greatly appreciate any advice or direction in this matter.

Thanks in advance!

-Adrian
