Subject Re: namespace for experimental components
Date Wed, 22 Jan 2014 16:00:30 GMT
Also, because most (if not all) components in the 'experimental'
namespace don't have the same exhaustive set of Mustella tests, we
have no way of guaranteeing their continued quality when changes are
made to other parts of the SDK... So, until a component gets a
comprehensive Mustella test suite, or hell freezes over, I cannot
imagine components moving from 'experimental' to 'spark' ;-)
