Subject An argument for more Geronimo releases
Date Tue, 05 Jan 2010 08:51:01 GMT

First my congratulations to the Geronimo team for the new version.  A grep on
the release notes tells you the number of Issues Resolved: 666

D:\downloads>grep "\[GERO" RELEASE_NOTES-2.2.txt | wc -l
666

An amazing amount of work.

Thank you.

So, no wonder the release took nine months. But I think this is a very long
time for an open source project's releases.

I'd wish that there be more Geronimo releases, about one each month, with
some bug fixes and some new features.
So, like there is jdk1.6.0_17 and apache-tomcat-6.0.20 there might one day
be geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.2.20

+ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Release_early,_release_often
+ new features + bugfixes get out faster, development is more lively
+ user feedback is more current
+ the development team is forced to more automate the release process 
+ the project is more alive with more new versions on the front page
+ I'm a version junky ;-)

I hope you forgive me who has never contributed for making such an argument.

Thanks,
Juergen
