Subject Re: [release] Call for help to release apacheds 0.9 and mina 0.7
Date Wed, 30 Mar 2005 03:36:11 GMT

We're approaching the end of the month and it looks like we're far from
having the web site ready (pls correct me if I'm wrong). I made some
changes to the main site, but everyone subproject lead should review its
own POM and other links and make sure they're correct.

With the recent shuffle of CVS and rearranging, we won't be able to
build a decent website. We need to update the main site navigation.xml
file to reflect the changes. 

It would be great if we had an updated main web site with the 0.9

Main site:

- Removed Related Projects link
- Removed Sandbox link
- Added MINA link
- Removed ApSeda link

The link to the mailing list is now obsolete, it still points to the
incubator list. I can't find the new list archive on eyebrowse
though ... Any idea?
