Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Change name of birt component
Date Thu, 26 Feb 2015 10:15:26 GMT
Sounds a good idea but minor to me, "Analytics" shows off a bit, maybe time for it :D
A good README in the birt root with a link to https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OFBIZ/Using+BIRT+with+OFBiz
would help!
