Subject Re: Eclipse Plugin for OpenJPA
Date Tue, 24 Feb 2009 16:37:44 GMT
No idea.  It had already been created before I started working on Geronimo.

 From the ASF page -
it sounds like sub-projects should go through the incubator, so maybe we 
should just create a branch for tooling under the existing openjpa 
project and just handle it just as another OpenJPA binary release with 
its own JIRA component for bug/feature tracking and not deal with the 
sub-project process overhead for now.
