Subject Innoveo Solutions would like to contribute
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2013 16:53:13 GMT
Innoveo is using Apache POI since 2007, and this library is strategic for us in order to support
the Excel support in our product Skyetm (http://www.innoveo.com/SoftwareSolution.aspx), we
want now to contribute bug fixes and feature enhancements we have already made and will have
to make in the future back to Apache POI.

We are ready to contribute the following:
·         - Support for more than 256 columns,
·         - Performances improvements,
·         - ....

We need now that Apache POI support "wildcards values" for vlookup, hlookup, lookup, match,
countif and sumif in the NEXT 2 to 4 WEEKS.

Innoveo is committed to develop this functionality but we would still appreciate some guidance,
so the chance the patch get accepted being higher. A lot of questions are popping up:
- Can it be done?
- Estimates if it would be done by an internal developer, best efforts?
- Difficulty, is the internal API able to tackle this requirement without requiring us to
changes most of code?
- Would some internal developers being interested by a bounty to develop this functionality?

Apache POI Roadmap as far as we did understand is driven by the bugtracker, is there any plan
to support "wildcards values" or has it be already done?
