Subject Re: Leveraging other JSF open source libraries in MyFaces with new contribution projects?
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2007 17:44:53 GMT
To begin with jboss uses lgpl and that's not compatible with ASF license.

Also frankly I do not want to mess with Jboss stuff cos MyFaces might face
with their lawyers too as in Apache Geronimo case in 2004;)

On the other hand facelets is always cool.
