Subject Re: [VOTE] Usage of Aether and Sisu as dependencies of maven core with EPL licenses - take 2
Date Thu, 18 Aug 2011 13:17:49 GMT
Mark, Can it possibly matter what the java package names are? There
are ton's of wierd historical package names floating around the
universe. There is no requirement for incubating Apache projects to
move package names just for the sake of moving them. I think that
'sonatype' in a package name is a herring of perfect redness.

This is important for us to know. If so, we can just cancel the vote and wait for this stuff
to be released at Eclipse.
