Subject Re: Make "framework" build the entire framework server
Date Tue, 17 Feb 2009 20:14:15 GMT
Sounds worth the time to try it out.

Two requests:
1) If this works, we publish the framework assembly instead of the two 
minimal assemblies to the Download page for 2.2, as this would allow 
users to build their own custom minimal server assembly (and of course 
some docs telling users how to create the old minimal assembly from this 
new framework assembly.)
2) If time permits, can we move or duplicate relevant testsuite modules 
into a new testsuite dir under either the framework dir or a new 
framework-testsuite dir, so that we can verify the basic framework 
cmdline scripts and installing plugins (like Jetty/Tomcat to make an 
equivalent minimal assembly)?
