Subject Re: Question about downloading binaries

Karl,

I'm exceedingly sorry here that the IPMC as a whole let you down by
not turning into these issues and dealing with them at the outset.
There's been a lot of sensitivity expressed lately to Apache projects
stepping on each other's toes.

Personally, I have no objection to including mutant jars in a -deps
binary with a clear explanation of what they are, but I would like to
see some support for that view, because I'd could imagine some
objections based on recent email.

In the longer term, if ManifoldCF really wants to include an "XML
parser with a difference", then it's certainly possible for you to
maintain and release a fork of Xerces under your own package names. I
agree with Sebb that you would be well advised to find some other way
around it. My personal reaction, in complete isolation from the
problem at hand, was 'really? what's the use-case for non-well-formed
XML?' This thread is probably not the best place to delve further in
that direction.
