Subject Re: [io][lang] CSV parser contribution
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2005 03:20:07 GMT
I'm +1 for [csv] as its own component. 

A solid 3 class component is still a good component, even if it can
handle its necessary functionality in 3 classes.

Stefan, your ending comment of:

"Please note that this contribution is dedicated to the Apache Software
Foundation, thank you for not using it otherwise."

makes me worried that you might not be aware what you're getting into.
While Netcetera AG retain copyright to their original codebase, the
Apache version is very liberally licenced and if it should become part
of an ASF codebase, then anyone can use it otherwise.

The feature list looks nice though :)
