Subject Re: Removing some old modules in 3.2.0-SNAPSHOT
Date Fri, 23 Dec 2016 16:03:48 GMT
OK, these 5 modules (jibx, xmlbeans, sdo, binding/object, 
rt-management-web - the best but never used logging system for the 
endpoints :-),  +2 systest jibx modules) have gone, -7 in total.

Not too many but it is a start.

I was hesitating for few mins about removing a databindins-xmlbeans, but 
then I reminded myself we can put it back if needed. I removed a JAX-RS 
Xmlbeans provider extension awhile back, and with JAXB and Aegis 
providing probably a 100% coverage for SOAP XML with no Xmlbeans queries 
at all we are likely safe here.

Dan, others, ping me please if you'd like some of these removed modules 
return to the 3.2.0 starting line, happy enough for the moment we have 
decreased a total number of modules by -7 :-)
