Subject Re: [VOTE] Struts as an Apache Top Level Project
Date Sat, 06 Mar 2004 20:12:45 GMT
>Following up on a brief thread on this list in December [1], Craig, Ted
>and I have put together a draft resolution to the board of directors [2],
>along with a cover letter [3], that would promote Struts to an Apache
>top-level project (TLP).

>The main reasons for moving to a TLP are described on the wiki [4]. In

>As most of you are no doubt aware, several Jakarta sub-projects have

+1 for Struts as a top level project
+1 for Craig as VP

Please feel free to add my name to the cover letter.
