Subject Re: Geronimo build automation status (longish)
Date Tue, 05 Dec 2006 06:41:04 GMT
At this point I think the AH usage is unofficial... something I have  
been trying to get working.  Once I get it to run our testsuite,  
build all our projects and dependent components and run the tck  
tests... once I get there, then I will officially recommend to the  
PMC that we endorse and use AH as the official automated build too  
for Geronimo.

But right now I'm still working out the details, testing how well it  
will work.

I can mail the license text to the PMC in the mean-time for review if  
that is what you would like.
