Subject RE: [Discuss] The Future of Ripple as a Top Level ASF Project
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2014 18:06:35 GMT
So, should we start the formal proposal to the Apache Foundation to move on making Ripple a
part of Cordova? I am guessing that we would need technical reasons on why that would make
sense. I could help with drafting the proposal. 

- Ripple is mostly used for Cordova development. Browsers already have viewport/touch emulation
built in and the value of ripple is minimal in this space
- Ripple is very similar to other top level 'Cordova tools' like CLI, Medic, etc. Hence, it
makes sense to treat it as such and make it a part of the Cordova like the other projects.

Its not a bad idea but this takes Ripple out of 'gui simulator' into 'env simulator' territory.
FWIW, we hope to have cycles this summer to put into cordova-browser but help from others
would be VERY welcome.
