Subject Re: [classlib][util]java6 TreeMap improvement
Date Tue, 26 Aug 2008 11:53:22 GMT
Hi Jimmy,

That's great! But what I'm thinking is if we should create a JIRA to 
track this merge. As you
said, there are lots of work, include bugs fixing, refactors, adding 
tests, it's better to be
tracked by JIRA, so we can see all the progress. And I'm volunteer to 
join Jimmy, if there
are anything I can do.

Best Regards,
