Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Karaf marketing
Date Mon, 07 Dec 2015 17:27:14 GMT
Hi guys,

just a quick update on this.

About the website, I'm fixing some broken links and reviewing all content.

On local branches, I migrated the documentation to asciidoc. I'm now 
working on the revamping of the dev guide.

I should have time tomorrow to move forward on this.

I keep you posted.

Regards
JB
