Subject Re: [VOTE RESULT] Packaging with maven
Date Wed, 09 May 2007 22:25:00 GMT

With 5 +1 votes and no -1 or 0 votes, the proposal passes. I've gone  
ahead and committed the patch for OPENJPA-194.

Note that I only changed the artifact names, not the directory names  
in which they reside. We can always start another vote on shuffling  
around the directory names if people deem it a worthwhile endeavor.
