Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache OGNL
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2011 14:01:59 GMT
Hi again guys,
just to follow-up the discussion, OGNL is owned by Marc Andrew
Davidson, that's the original author, that started OGNL development in
the far 1998.
Then, it was moved to OpenSimphony only in the 2004 - later moved to
its own domain.
I'd say that nobody can claim OGNL trademark unless Drew, that has
been included in the Initial Committers list, and has donated OGNL
codebase signing the SoftwareGrant.
Sunds like the proposal is almost ready to be submitted, what do you think?
Simo
