Subject Re: Enhancer engine deps problem for releases
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2012 07:44:49 GMT
Hi Fabian,

do you think that would also mean to change the package
structure/module names of those engine or do you think it is OK for
any EnhancementEngine that is managed by the Stanbol Community to use
"org.apache.stanbol.enhancer.engine.{engine-name}" as artifactId and
package name.

Regardless of that +1 from my side.
