Subject Re: [VOTE] [POLICY] Allow extra release distribution channels like the central Maven repository
Date Mon, 15 Sep 2008 14:14:42 GMT
+1
I don't always think it's a good idea to do so, and particularly to depend
on it from another release. But I don't think the technical constraint fits
the social purpose in this instance and ends up making a nuisance of itself
for little or no benefit.
