Subject [vote] Accept JDWP contribution in HARMONY-6187
Date Mon, 11 May 2009 11:32:53 GMT
Hi all,

It's been a week since I sent out the initial mail about this 
contribution and opinion seems positive so I'd like to open a vote to 
officially accept the contribution.

[ ] +1 Accept this contribution
[ ] -1 Reject this contribution because...

I'll conclude the vote in 3 days as usual, unless anyone needs more time.
