Subject Re: FileVault for import and export of JCR?
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2017 09:36:35 GMT
Hey Lance,

Seeing as you are going to use Sling, have you looked at Composum[1]? It has all the features
you need from CRX, it makes packages, it has a repository browser,... 
It has MIT License and will even be included from the upcoming release of Sling, version 9,
