Subject Re: [VOTE] Yoko - A CORBA Server Sub-Project
Date Wed, 25 Jan 2006 20:20:56 GMT
Could you correct the spelling of schema and add at least the apache  
emails of the committers missing emails?  Mine is djencks@apache.org

What is the relationship between this and the trifork code just  
donated via Jira and the code we've been working on in the geronimo  
tree?

thanks
david jencks
