Subject Re: Split out transaction
Date Wed, 13 Dec 2006 02:39:29 GMT
I'm ok for splitting it out.  I'm not sure today is the best timing.   
My experience is the simple things like this as your releasing  
software is the thing that goes belly up and causes great pain.   
We'll have to peel it out, test it, vote on it, etc.

I'd prefer to do this after we get 1.2-beta and 2.0-m1 out the door.

Are you proposing:

geronimo/server/[trunk | branches/1.2] /modules/geronimo-transaction- 
gbeans for the server and branches and


for the externalized transaction and connector modules?

So for after 2.0-m1 and 1.2-beta1 we would move it out and version it  
as 2.0-SNAPSHOT and release as -2.0.

This kind of implies that the other modules like tomcat, jetty,  
activemq, etc should be renamed with -gbean suffixes to be consistent.
