Subject Re: Champion needed for new workflow project proposal
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2009 13:34:38 GMT
Hi Sasa,

+) sorry but I could find no link to the proposal - could you repost the
link?
+) I worked for Together Teamlösungen many moons ago so I'm aware of
Enhydra Shark (but no affiliation for the time being)

So without knowing the proposal I think it is a successful open source
project but moving to LGPL for a mature project is a serious issue ...

Cheers,

Siegfried Goeschl
