Subject Re: Adding JSR-286 API jar to a Maven repository
Date Wed, 18 Apr 2007 15:41:03 GMT
After discussing this with Torsten I think the simplest way to resolve 
this is to put the source files into the pluto repository with the 
additional notice that these are non-final and may change (see the 
updated jira comment from Torsten)

Hope this works for everybody.
