Subject Re: Namespace Considerations (Was: RE: Apache River Release)
Date Wed, 06 Jan 2010 17:33:17 GMT
There's no rule that 100% of the code in Apache projects must be in  
the org.apache name space.

But the exceptions to date have been few. Those that I'm aware of are  
in the javax name space that is mandated by external specifications.  
For example, the Geronimo project ships code in the javax.ejb name  
space, and the JDO project ships code in the javax.jdo name space.

I don't know whether net.jini falls into the category of "external  
specifications" that would justify preserving the name space.
