Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Next 2.0 Milestones - Assemblies and Certification - Do we need 8?
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2007 20:51:13 GMT
I am a Jetty and Cayenne user, so I'd like a "Jetty + ? + Cayenne"  
combo :-)

So while I do not agree with the implication that an informal  
popularity poll can provide a meaningful selection of a default  
configuration (as this thread shows it will still be mostly  
arbitrary), I agree with the approach outlined by Matt - certify a  
minimal number of combinations (hopefully just 2) that spans all  
supported individual components. The actual certified combos  
shouldn't matter, as long as there is an easy way to activate  
preferred components from the uber tarball.
