Subject Re: [DISCUSS] How to proceed with the 3.0 efforts
Date Mon, 10 Dec 2012 06:45:20 GMT
Hi Ichiro,

well, that's basically it - more than enough I'd say, since these two are really big points.
You can have a look at, there are some pages on 3.0, too.

Betreff: Re: [DISCUSS] How to proceed with the 3.0 efforts

For those of us who've not followed the 3.0 progress (or lack thereof), could
someone provide a very brief synopsis?

My understanding is that the 2.8.x branch is fully functional and basically an
update of the com.ecyrd.jspwiki code in Apache packaging, and that the 3.0
branch was an attempt to rewrite the backend using Janne's JSR-170 subset,
but that hasn't moved forward. I didn't know about any plans for Stripes. But
this is all just a guess based on:

    A new effort is started to graduate with a 2.9 codebase (based on 2.8),
    so no JCR backend and no Stripes, but the traditional JSPWiki, the
    progress can still be followed at our JIRA issue tracker.

[I'm frankly happy with the "traditional" 2.8/2.9 code base as it's
compatible with a substantial number of extant projects and plugins.
I'd prefer JSPs over Stripes, or anything that adds complication.]

If there's a web page describing the goals of 3.0, a reference would
be good. The JIRA roadmap isn't that helpful.
