Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Apache DeltaSpike - CDI-Extensions project
Date Wed, 30 Nov 2011 10:00:04 GMT
Yes, we reached out to them quite a while ago (informally). Board was also involved. 


Also please note that almost all of the involved contributors are long time GIT users already!
I also have personally reserved quite a few days to help out Infra with setting up the environment.

LieGrue,
strub

>> 
>>  Background
>>  ------------
>> 
>>  One  of the
