Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "OpenmeetingsProposal" by AlexeiFedotov
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2011 09:43:24 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "OpenmeetingsProposal" page has been changed by AlexeiFedotov:

  === Relationships with Other Apache Products ===
  Web application part of Openmeetings runs under Apache Tomcat. It uses Apache Commons and
Apache Velocity. Red5 server uses a lot of Apache components, including Apache Mina. !OpenMeetings
itself uses Apache Axis2 for the SOAP / REST API. !OpenMeetings was reworked to use Apache
OpenJPA instead of Hibernate. Since revision 4000 (version 1.8) all dependencies to Hibernate
have been removed from the source.
- === A Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ===
+ === An Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ===
  The Apache Foundation is the home of vendor neutral and industry standard software. By joining
the Foundation we will apply Apache's Release and Licensing Standards to our product. Doing
that we will improve our release processes, quality standards and it should give a planning
reliability to our end users. But our main motivation is that our project is about collaboration,
communication and enabling people to easily interact with each other. We think that the "Apache
Way" of community driven software development with flat hierarchy and transparency in decision
and design will reflect best those core activities of our software.
+ Well, or course we want our project to be alive, and useful. Several contributors have former
experience with Apache Harmony project (which previously has been known as SourceForge ORP
project). Apache brand is really helpful compared to SourceForge brand for community building
and getting support from commercial companies. From the other side org.apache.harmony story
shows that the brand cannot help when there no community remain. Hence we try to keep people
interested, and the product developed at the first place, thus supporting Apache brand fame
with good facts.
