Subject RE: Jackrabbit press release

I was not saying Jackrabbit had to be perfect, of course ;)
I was referring to Jukka's introduction about apache products and press releases : "some major
new stuff to be announced beyond the normal technical audience". And my interpretation is
that it should be big enough to :
1. attract more people (on this point I completely agree with you);
2. attract again some people discouraged by some previous lacks of the project.

But I agree making so noise about the 1.4 could attract some more eyes-and-brains on the project.
An another big release with fireworks, beers and girls for the 2.0?

I don't think Jackrabbit has to be perfect to warrant a press release.

Quite the contrary in fact, attracting more people to the project is
the best way to help it evolve.

So I agree with Jukka about making some honest (as opposed to
marketing BS) noise about 1.4.
