Subject Re: Struts-EL: Status and moving forward
Date Thu, 05 Sep 2002 09:47:17 GMT
If you're ready to offer it to the project, ZIP it up as a distribution 
that we can download from somewhere and post it as an enhancement to 
bugzilla. Then we can have a look and decide about importing it into the 
Struts CVS.

If you'd like to kick it around some more first, instead of posting to 
bugzilla, post an ANNOUNCEMENT to the user list.

In either case, I'd be happy to help out with the JavaDoc, so you don't 
have to get bogged down in that.
