Subject Java 1.2 compatibility for the 'contrib' code
Date Wed, 01 Feb 2006 19:16:03 GMT

We have a long standing policy of requiring Java 1.2 compatibility for
all code contributions to HttpClient including those that end up in the
'contrib' package. This policy prevents us from accepting the SPNEGO
auth scheme contributed by Mikael Wikström into Commons HttpClient code

We have two options: 
(1) stick to the policy and include Mikael's code into HttpComponents
HttpAuth module, eventually to be released as a component of Jakarta
HttpClient 4.0
(2) Revoke the policy and accept Mikael's code as source-only
contribution to the 'contrib' package of HttpClient 3.1 

What do we do?
