Subject Re: Cancelled: JavaOne MyFaces Committers/Contributors meeting
Date Wed, 10 May 2006 10:29:14 GMT
Hi Stan, Hi all,
This is really bad news for our community.
I'm personally very sad that JBoss has decided to choose this path.
Most of you probably know that relationship between JBoss and the ASF
was not always free of conflicts in the past. It's also no secret that
JBoss never was happy about the Apache licence - for reasons beyond my
ken.
You mentioned that this decision was because of time and resources.
There is no reason to doubt, of course. Stan, don't get me wrong. I
appreciate your contributions and thank you for your offer to commit
the 1.2 stuff. Perhaps you where a little bit frustrated to get not
much support from the community the last weeks. Ok, our fault. But,
hey, this is Apache open source land. Many of us have day jobs not
directly related to MyFaces. Many of us are currently working hard
getting MyFaces 1.1.x stable. Everyone in the community is free to set
his personal priorities. That's how it works.
However, supporting Apache MyFaces further on would have been a strong
signal from JBoss to the open source community. Too bad.

Regards,
Manfred
