Subject Re: SVN source structure for Apache cTAKES?
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2012 19:22:48 GMT
Hi James,

No problem, OK thanks for helping get to the bottom of this.
We had issues like this with Apache Lucy and recently with
Apache Any23 and my advice to you guys is that it's just 
better to really invest the time now to get your community *fully*
(yes that even means in progress releases) over here to the ASF
or else you'll find yourself (a) duplicating effort; (b) splintering users
(should we get *apache ctakes* or *ctakes before apache*), etc.

Releases get users interested, cause maintenance, generate buzz, 
etc., and I'm of the opinion that should happen here since you guys 
wanted to come here and build your project at the ASF.

I think you guys are doing great and just want to see Apache cTAKES
thrive so thanks for helping to do that.

Cheers,
Chris
