Subject Re: Renaming XWork packages (was Poll: What part of a Struts...)
Date Wed, 14 Jun 2006 04:33:20 GMT
If XWork were at Apache, it's hard to see it as anything but  
'org.apache.xwork'.  Is that not possible?

I think XWork truly deserves to stand on it's own (like it does  
today) and not be tied to anything else.  Surely it can live as a TLP  
at Apache can it not?
