From "Ian.Priest" <Ian.Pri...@opsera.com>
Subject RE: Possible Contribs
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2007 11:37:33 GMT
SHALE-457 and SHALE-458 created.

Note that code to create the patches was copied from project-specific
external classes. I've "retro-fitted" the code to the classes in SVN so
it's untested and not "release ready" in this context!

Cheers,
Ian.
