Subject Re: JavaHL package namespace / migration / compatability
Date Wed, 18 Nov 2009 05:57:25 GMT
I can understand why Subversion should be made a top level project quickly,
but I personally believe the namespace change is a reasonable request in
order to graduate for all the same reasons that convinced me Pivot should
change its namespace.

It sends the wrong message not to change given the importance of the Apache
namespace, imho.

Regards,
Chris

Handling case by case is valuable.

If it were com.somecompany.foo.* then there might be cause for concern in
that it might not appear independent.

I'm fine with Subversion keeping the current namespace, under the
understanding that migrating in the future in a way that makes sense for
their users is a good thing to do. This is similar to when a subproject goes
TLP too - for example, I work on Archiva, which came from Maven, which is
partially org.apache.maven.archiva.* and partially org.apache.archiva.*.
