Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "November2009" by ThorstenScherler
Date Wed, 18 Nov 2009 22:50:07 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "November2009" page has been changed by ThorstenScherler.
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/November2009?action=diff&rev1=31&rev2=32

--------------------------------------------------

   * Jukka Zitting: I note that almost all of the recent commits have been pretty big. Smaller
and more frequent commits are generally better for collaboration. In general it looks like
the project is again on a good track, though I'd add community development as a third top
issue before graduation.
