Subject Re: OGNL as a part of Commons
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2011 19:29:19 GMT
@Stephen: OGNL is currently ownerless, as Lukasz reported, and he's
the only one maintainer on github. Original authors agreed on donating
the to the ASF, I suppose to provide OGNL community the
support/maintainance that deserves. Someone else didn't agree already
on taking in consideration yet another expression language, due to EL
and JEXL already on Commons, that's why we proposed BeanUtils/JEXL. I
would be the first happy on having it as a proper component.

@Paul: sounds reasonable IMHO, even if the OGNL project looks more
like a general purpose expression language, not strictly related to
Struts. Personally there are still good reason to propose OGNL here at
Commons, even if the Struts path would be acceptable
