Subject Re: Empire-db and Empire-Struts2-ext distribution with Maven support
Date Fri, 26 Dec 2008 13:45:12 GMT
Any updates on this? Anything I should do? I'd like to get started now
that I have some spare time.

I'd like to add the build in my hudson ci server... do you have a CI
server running empire? Do you have abuild script for that?

And I have not seen any updates in the trunk for a month? If nothing
much is happening on trunk I prefer  to do the big bang scenario...
That should take me about a day of work...

Hoping for a quick reply,

I don't see it as much of a problem to do that with every release since getting a release
out and accepted can be quite time difficult and time consuming so that this step is probably
the least problem.
