Subject Re: [classlib] creating a new snapshot, and planned breakage heads-up
Date Tue, 14 Feb 2006 15:10:49 GMT
I object :)

I don't mean that seriously.

Here is what I want to do first -

I'll do the security change as agreed, and get the regex/bean/math in, 
so that the snapshot has all we can.  Even try to get some of the 
testcase or sql code in.

Let me suggest we discuss a different way - when do you plan on breaking?
