Subject Re: [BeanUtils] Removing @author tags?
Date Fri, 08 Mar 2013 20:45:45 GMT
Hi again,

I'm working on removing the @author tags. I was able to map some of the
authors back to apache login Ids from people.apache.org. However there are
a lot of names, where I can't find a apache login id for. I'm not sure
where to put those names: developers or contributors?
