Subject Re: [IMPORTANT] Major Changes To Source Code
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2006 16:13:58 GMT
Hey Sean,

I just blew away my complete SVN copy of MyFaces and went to fetch it all again 

svn checkout

I got the following error on checkout:

Fetching external item into 'current\commons'
svn: URL '' doesn't exist

It looks like something is still pointing to a non-existent commons link.

>Manfred's ambitious source code reorg is now complete!  Here is all of

>1.) New subproject "shared" (formerly commons.)  All source code from
>commons has been refactored to have an org.apache.myfaces.shared
>package name.
>2.) Commons is gone.  Its been removed from the "current" external but
>it will likely still be on your local checkout dir.  You can delete it

>org.apache.myfaces.shared_tomahawk.  Manfred can explain more about

>4.) This change is effective immediately on both the trunk and the
