Subject Re: [RT] Recommendation Unit-Test System?

I understand your POV. But here I am speaking as a Mentor.

This project needs to make sure that the dependencies to the project that we require our users
to download are acceptable in combination with the Apache License 2.0.

It would be very bad if releases and project graduation from the Apache Incubator was blocked
due to an unfortunate choice of unit test technology.

This is called "Category B"

Confluence (Apache Wiki) and Jira (Bugtracking) are both just free for open-source projects.

We need to be careful about "Category X".

But then Apache does use GPL in infrastructure in various ways. It's just that we need to
take great care with project releases.

Thanks! It might be too "visual" but it seems that you can write it also just in ActionScript,
am I wrong?
