Subject Re: Proposed Contribution to Apache Commons,
Date Tue, 29 Sep 2015 22:55:01 GMT

Hello and welcome to Apache Commons.

It's not clear to me why Naomi is better than regular expressions. Pointing
to Javadocs is not the best way to get traction.

Your project would be better served by having some documentation on your
front page with an example driven tutorial.

Is Naomi faster than REs?

What can I do in Naomi that REs can't do? And vice-versa.

Examples of this on your front page would help you at least get folks to
consider learning a brand new way of doing things...
