Thanks for your comments about the ownership
of the code.  Just as I commented on Geir being
our "fearless leader" (both words of which he
clarified/denied/etc.) because he is a visible personage
as the list's original MC, people may see my code
contribution as "mine" since I contributed it and am
thus a visible personage.  But I _do_ want to endorse
your comment that it is _not_ "my" code, it belongs
to the ASF.  It is collectively "our" code, and I am
looking forward to the continued scrutiny,
recommendations, bug fixes, architectural
improvements, and all other contributions that
The List (that means each of you reading
this message!) will be providing for this project.

We're all in this together.

Hi gang!

The "open" in "open source" refers to more than the source code.


Similarly, it seems we're getting a lot of interest and work on the
BootJVM stuff now (wee! Cool! Actual code :-)), and since Dan wrote
that originally, you'll see him answer a lot of the questions, enter
a lot of the discussions, etc. Just a very natural result of him
knowing a lot about the code and the decisions made while writing it
initially. However, its no longer "his" code, its "our" code, and anyone
is at any time welcome to do exactly the same, or a lot more. Like
contribute another JVM implementation. We (which by virtue of you
reading this includes you!) can decide where to go.


Welcome to Apache! :-)
