Subject Re: discuss: FOR-145 Make Forrest able to be imported by Ant
Date Fri, 17 Nov 2006 08:18:25 GMT
Hi everybody,

not sure whether it makes sense to give you more time for feedback.

I think we should close this issue before releasing 0.8.

Ross and Cyriaque aired concern about the target renaming and I tried to
give reasons why we cannot do it like they suggested. 

Should I call a vote (because it is a fundamental change)?

Or can I go ahead and close the issue?
