Subject Re: Where should we put Samples and Plug-ins?
Date Wed, 24 Jan 2007 22:09:56 GMT
Thanks Donald for migrating this discussion onto dev@.  I posted some
feedback about option #1 in the JIRA you referenced.  To sum up, I was
concerned about moving optional modules to an area called "plugins",
since IMO that's a misnomer since optional modules aren't always
plugins and plugins aren't always optional :-)   I am also concerned
about complicating release management for optional modules that are
sensitive to the Geronimo server version.

I think we can solve the problem described in G2728 without
reorganizing the source tree, for example by adjusting the server
dependencies.  But if there is also some motivation to further trim
down what's in server/trunk (to speed up the build, perhaps) then I
like option #2 better.

Best wishes,
