Subject [Bugzilla] Commons HttpClient as a top level Bugzilla project
Date Sat, 31 Jan 2004 12:16:24 GMT
Good day,

I am approaching you on behalf of the Jakarta Commons HttpClient project

We are wondering if it would be possible to promote Jakarta Commons
HttpClient to a top level project in Bugzilla. We would like to be able
to set release versions and milestones specific to HttpClient, which is
not possible as long as HttpClient remains a sub-component of
jakarta-commmons.

Please let us know if that's feasible 

Cheers,

Oleg Kalnichevski
