Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-1761) Change geronimo-util module to geronimo-crypto, give credit where credit is due
Date Thu, 23 Mar 2006 05:45:11 GMT
Can you recommend another name then?  util doesn't do it for me.

Thanks,

the non-encumbered code from bouncycastle.  It should be in a more accurately named module
and package, since it's not just generic "util" code.  It would also be nice to put a note
in every file header saying where it's from, or at least in NOTICE.txt perhaps.  There may
be improvements we want to track?
