Subject Re: [discuss][Digester] The future of Digester an the Digester3 in sandbox - Take2
Date Wed, 23 Mar 2011 23:50:08 GMT
Hi Matt!!!
I noticed 2 important points I'd like to discuss:

1) generally speaking, the bigger part of the users are lazy: they
just want to grab latest released artifact of XXX component with Maven
and use it, so it is hard to obtain feedbacks from APIs not released
yet;
2) committers/PMCs interested on Digester is reduced: we got two +1s,
one +0 and I didn't express my opinion (If I would have done it, in my
country they would have called me Mafia guy :D )

I didn't understand when you wrote "I'm certainly not going to twist
your arm": of course you wouldn't do it physically :D but I didn't
understand in which sense :P

Have a nice day, all the best!
Simo
