Subject incubation prospect: GUI tools for Derby
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2008 16:01:56 GMT
The derby-dev list is trying to figure what to do with a contribution 
that is being offered by two students: 
http://www.nabble.com/Apache-Derby-Management-Tool-td18931716.html#a18931716 
The students have written a GUI tool for administering Derby databases 
and servers. There is some concern that Derby itself is not the right 
community to host this tool because Derby's charter explicitly 
discourages GUI contributions: 
http://db.apache.org/derby/derby_charter.html#Database+Technology 
However, in the past our user community has shown a fair amount of 
interest in GUI tools.

Would it make sense to try to incubate a separate, related community 
around this contribution? Or is it premature to approach the incubator 
with a body of code that only has two developers?

Thanks for your thoughts...
-Rick
