Subject Re: [RE-VOTE] adoption of mod_firehose MODULE
Date Thu, 01 Mar 2012 21:02:32 GMT
Modules do not have to be tested *before* they appear in trunk. That's
putting the cart before the horse. Part of the development process
(while in trunk) is doing the testing portion. And hey... if it never
gets tested, then it gets marked as "experimental" and we all move on.

Cheers,
