Subject Re: [jira] Assigned: (GERONIMO-3855) PortletSecurityException in Plugins portlet
Date Wed, 20 Feb 2008 02:09:39 GMT
Joe,

I went one revision id newer than the one that you previously built 
(just so the artifact names would be different).

I agree that we need to keep an eye on Pluto.  I think (I may be wrong 
though) that we will want to keep track of what is going on with the 2.0 
version (trunk) because that is where the 'pluggable' feature was 
added.  Also, that is where the new jsr-286 spec is being fleshed out.

There have not been any releases against Pluto trunk yet - and when I 
tried to build it over the weekend, the build hit an error (I don't 
remember what though).
