Subject Re: Change to commit model for Apache Geronimo
Date Wed, 24 May 2006 22:08:31 GMT
I've been pondering the question for a while now... Up to this point,  
the primary individuals involved in the devtools subproject were  
either g-users or developers outside the geronimo community and this  
gives the illusion that there is a lack of interest in this  
subproject which I do not think is the case.  So until we start  
attracting more "tooling folks" to the community I think development  
involvement doesn't necessarily have to start from code contribution,  
but it can start from a discussion and requirements perspective.  And  
I think we are starting to do this.  (Dain's and David J's work on  
ConfigStore enhancements for example have given them more insight as  
to what is being done in this area). As we move forward and we  
continue to enhance the integration within the tools and the runtime  
more of these discussions will occur making others more tools-aware,  
and hopefully this will start leading code contributions.  So in  
short, I think its just a waiting game and over time I do believe we  
can get more involvement in these areas.
