Subject Re: [LANG] incompatibility of jar with svn
Date Thu, 15 Apr 2010 16:20:58 GMT
James,

Actually, I believe Lang 3 is supposed to be mixed and matched. That
is why the package was renamed. What I think we have here are symptoms
of an incomplete transition. If we really want mixing/matching, the
groupId should be renamed too; otherwise, we should revert the package
name.
