Subject Re: LocaleBeanUtils - intended development direction?
Date Sun, 27 Jul 2003 22:08:48 GMT
hi adam

the development direction of LocaleBeanUtils will probably depend on those 
developers who volunteer to take it forward. the history of this code is 
that developers have (sporadically) got involved and pushed the code 
forward then have moved on as soon as the code did what they needed it to.

i can't speak for any other committers but this isn't a particular itch 
for myself at the moment so realistically it's not likely to become a 
priority for me unless some keen developers step up. if you've got some 
time and feel like contributing some code then i'd suggest that you join 
us on the commons-dev list (you'll need to set up some mail filters for 
the [beanutils] prefix since it's a high volume list) and we can all talk 
further about the actual design.
