Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Move ServiceMix Kernel into Felix as a subproject
Date Sun, 05 Apr 2009 16:36:54 GMT
Right, I think Karaf need to address several issues before aiming to
become a TLP.
The first one is to build a more heterogeneous community (most of the
committers come from the same company right now), the second is to
align with Felix (file deployer, shell, third party dependencies
bundles, etc...).   I think both issues would be much easier to
address inside Felix than anywhere else (be it ServiceMix, a TLP on
its own or even the Incubator).
However, I'm quite convinced that Karaf as the potential of becoming a
TLP at some point later.  We'll see what happen.
