Subject Re: TLF Modifications/Getting Involved
Date Thu, 06 Jun 2013 07:19:39 GMT
Hi all,

IMHO. There are no much contributions to TLF only because of its closed
nature. I also used TLF in my past projects. I felt very hard to modify the
existing behavior, just because most of the classes are marked final,
private, Excluded, internal, marked with custom namespace.

I really welcomes Tony's interest. If we make the private/custom namespace
methods to protected or public, we can see a lot of
improvements/involvements in TLF also.

+++1 for Tony's proposal.
