Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Commons RDF as new component?
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2016 22:10:05 GMT
Yes, I don't mind keeping reviewing pull requests for the future. I
made a lot of comments, and inevitably some of them may have slipped
through the cracks and not been fixed as part of the pull request
review process or been postponed and recorded in Jira. However, I will
still be a consumer of the API through both JSONLD-Java and RDF4J, so
when things do stablise I plan on scheduling some time to do a full
review, given I haven't been part of the day to day development so
haven't been tracking everything closely for the past 18 months or so.
