Subject Re: What's the goal of SAF 2.0? (was Public API first draft )
Date Fri, 05 May 2006 19:58:07 GMT
Cool :)  That jives with what has been said in the past, I just wanted, 
as a current SAF1 user, to make sure that message didn't get lost.

be very different, the migration path for WebWork users is going to be much more difficult
and many (most) won't immediately jump over, so there won't be an immediate community using
SAF 2.0 in production systems. It would also mean we should re-open WebWork's CVS, etc. for
continued work to support the users (like me) who can't make this big a jump immediately and
still need bug fixes, etc in the meantime.
