Subject Re: apache-2.0 now clean
Date Mon, 02 Feb 1998 23:11:31 GMT
When we discussed this last week, a couple people wanted nothing
in the 2.0 repository, several more wanted nothing until 1.3.0,
and one person (Jim) apparently wanted a mirror of 1.3b3.  If you
call that a unilateral decision, fine.  I am willing to make a unilateral
decision when the alternative is insanity.

No.  The whole idea of the 2.0 tree is to have a shared information
space that is specific to 2.0 development and in which people can work 
on the 2.0 redesign.  The notion that we should throw a bunch of
unstable code into the directory and then just hack at it until it
resembles something like what someone might want in a 2.0 is utterly
absurd.  It doesn't make sense to start hacking until we have at least
some clue as to what the destination is supposed to look like, and to
do that we need people to commit their own plans for what they want
in 2.0.  Once they've done that, they can just copy the code they
are working on into the appropriate directories and go to it.
In any case, the 1.3 and 2.0 repositories will be disjoint!

In the meantime, however, I want to see it when someone makes a
change or addition to the 2.0 repository. In order for me to see such
things, automated mirroring of 1.3 changes into 2.0 must stop.
