Subject Re: jersey (stargate dependency) is insane!
Date Tue, 04 May 2010 04:00:51 GMT
Thanks for looking into this Thomas.   If there are not currently
JAX-RS implementations in Debian, its a bit of a problem.  I just
presumed the jersey stuff reasonable.  What if we updated to a newer
version?  Or used less of it?
