Subject Re: RSFB events and annotations....
Date Mon, 10 Aug 2009 18:59:33 GMT

OK.   I have the WSDLDocumentation stuff working.
and documentation stuff can be added to a BUNCH of places now.   Definitely a 
really cool addition for the java-first use cases.

Alessio, since you had a very good idea on how the documentation stuff should 
look, do you have a good idea for the policy stuff?    :-)
