Subject Re: target for 2.9.1 release?
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2013 22:31:11 GMT
I think we should get JSPWIKI-739 done before considering "hatching" out 
of incubation.  Right now, all of our documentation is off the Apache 
site and our informal Wiki ("Legacy Site") is under lock-and-key due to 
Finnish legal reasons.

We do not need to shut down the site--as that's a 
third-party site we have no control over it (the fact that it's owned by 
a JSPWiki committer doesn't matter, it's a third-party site and from an 
Apache JSPWiki perspective it is outside of our control.)  But we should 
have our system documentation and probably a Wiki to be *on* the Apache 
site, even if it's duplicated by third party sites like  I 
would like to get the Infra folks to host a JSPWiki site (we are *sooo* 
much faster than Confluence Wikis, and we could probably get other 
Apache projects to adopt us) but if they won't do that, and our only 
options are (1) hosting our documentation off Apache using JSPWiki or 
(2) hosting our documentation on Apache w/Confluence Wiki, perhaps (2), 
however unpleasant, should be evaluated.
