Subject Re: [EXT][DISCUSS] Including Groovy as a scripting language
Date Tue, 27 Sep 2011 02:41:19 GMT
 Hi;

 I like it. I've been thinking that we should campaign moving
 opensource extensions to apache-extras, as it could make
 things easier for maintainers if they don't want to sign
 an ICLA.
 Of course I won't complain if you think it's better to include
 this directly.

 Pedro.
