Subject Re: Creating a new git repo for the Edgent project

Perhaps additional discussion is warranted.

A goal has been to make it easier for folks to get started using Edgent as opposed to being
builders/developers of Edgent (hence the distribution of Edgent jars to maven central).

Being able to easily get the sample sources separate from “Edgent” seems right to me.
 Yeah, we really don’t need to release a separate sample sources bundle to achieve that
(and not “releasing” samples makes life easier for us).  If the samples are in their own
git/github repo then we can just point users there and they can easily download/clone.

So, I guess I’m still a proponent of a separate repo but now not doing a release / separate
source bundle of them.  Make sense?
