Subject Re: RPM for jakarta/xml apaches projects
Date Mon, 04 Dec 2000 17:19:59 GMT
Hi Henri,
on a similar note, I am currently beginning the long road into
the Debian project. I have already stated that I wish to take
over the packaging for Cocoon, and am currently debating whether to try
to do Tomcat as well. I would be interested in hearing from
folks here whether they percieve a need for Debian packaging, or
whether they prefer to "roll their own"?
cheers
-Thom
