It wasn't a criticism, I think it's a strength of open source
that things can take as long as they need to take instead of
rushing out for some sales deadline. I was just wondering why
it's taken so long really. Oracle announced they were open-
sourcing ADF Faces at Java One in June 2005, I assumed it went
to Apache soon after that, I wonder why that took 9 months...
