Subject Re: [QUESTION] OpenEJb plugin for Eclipse
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2008 02:20:40 GMT
I keep meaning to get involved here, and I really should as it's not  
fair to you having to work off in a corner.  As you state, it's far  
more motivating to have someone to work with.  Tends to lead to  
smaller more frequent patches, discussion, and all sorts of goodies :)

If you can submit what you have as a patch I'll take a look at the  
whole thing.
