Subject Re: [VOTE] HttpComponents Core 4.0 ALPHA4 release
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2007 09:32:55 GMT

I think this project is healthy because it has a large community. Yes, 
Oleg is doing a great job and is writing most of the code. Clearly the 
project would not advance as fast if he wasn't there. But given the 
great community interest there are enough people out there who could and 
would step in when Oleg resigns eventually. I see many projects craving 
for HttpComponents and the new HttpClient. So if the project comes to a 
stall this may be the trigger for a developer to get his hands dirty in 
HttpComponents code (not that the code was dirty, no pun intended).


PS Oleg, look out of your window. Isn't this wonderful snow very 
tempting? I can hardly concentrate on codign today. Let's go for a ride 
to Laax on the weekend!
