Subject Re: AJAX Toolkit Framework Proposal
Date Wed, 21 Dec 2005 04:17:27 GMT

Some one comes to ASF with a proposal, typically we give it our full
consideration. I can understand why cliff asked about eclipse option
(Beehive/Eclipse stuff!), but i can understand Adam/Sam's view
completely as I am on the "ASL 2.0 is good" band-wagon and i do want
ASF's stamp on everything i do. I really don't mind if Apache gets
into Eclipse tools/plugins. We do have Eclipse plugins in Axis2
project. We also have another plugin for running Geronimo inside WTP.
So it's not a new thing and the proposal has my +1.

Please pardon me for being blunt, I don't really care about what
happens inside IBM/Eclipse or who said what/when. All i know is that
we have a proposal in front of us and as a community we take it or
leave it or ask for changes if we think they are needed. As far as i
can see "since we did it before, we should do so again" is not a
strong argument for requesting a change to the proposal. FWIW, i've
been on the receiving end of unpleasant surpises as well. Take
ServiceMix/Geronimo for example. It's a fact of life here and we all
have learned to deal with it :)
