Subject AW: More votes required for Empire-db release
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2008 07:39:21 GMT
Hello,
thanks for your input, Martijn.

As you pointed out there's some work left regarding licensing, readme and build stuff.


I have some questions:
- Are Eclipse project files forbidden? We put them in for convenience reasons.
- Is the maven distributable a must for the initial incubating release or could this be a
new feature for the next rel.?

The reason we want this release out as soon as possible is that the namespace from the last
(non Apache) release to the new one has changed.
So everyone who would download the last non-Apache-incubator-release would be forced to change
his source code after upgrading to the first Apache Incubator release which we find quite
painful for the user/developer.

Any inputs from anyone would be appreciated,
Ciao Jörg :-)

The licenses, notice and such should go into the META-INF directory in
the jar file, not in the root.

The manifest.mf should contain information such as documented here:
