Subject Re: Removing some old modules in 3.2.0-SNAPSHOT
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2016 16:19:39 GMT
Hi Sergey,
I like the idea of cleaning up the code base a bit. I would however cast 
my -1 on the removal of rt/ws/eventing and rt/ws/mex, which are ws-* 
spec we kind of declare support for / implementation.
