Subject About the Partial Page Rendering Commit ...

Hi There!

Since the recent commit brought quite some comments and advices in different
threads I'll try to comment on what I understand as the outcome of
that discussions
in this mail.

I signed and faxed it today in the morning, so you all can be sure
that this is apaches
code now. Sorry that I haven't done that before, I did not know that
this is also necessary
if another commiter commits the code for you. I should have gathered
more information of the
process of apache contributions - to be honest I just didn't think of
any legal issues.

I'm also sorry for that one. I just thought it would be good to
provide some code which
implements what I think came out of the initial discussions, before
starting to talk
on the mailing list of things that do not already exist. That was
probably the wrong direction
and I will try hard to communicate more efficiently with the
community in the future.

>The second problem is one that Wendy pointed out ... lack of license
headers on the source files.

Again I can only apologize, I just didn't think of that - sorry.

I really didn't mean to bypass confirmation or evaluation of the
community. I just thougth
if the code is commited to the sandbox that this doesn't cause any
harm and all people that
want to verify the code can take a look there and give feedback.

All together I can only apologize for all those beginners misstakes. I
am still new to Open Source
Development and although it may have produced a different image I just
had the best intentions.
Thanks to all the comments that came up after this commit I belive I
learned a lot of things
about how the ASF works and will hopefully be able to avoid such
beginners misstakes in the future.

kind regards
