Subject Re: SDO IP Issues, was: SDO Java M3 Release Candidate RC1 (IBMers involved with EMF code)
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2007 17:23:21 GMT
Frank,

Were you the only IBM employee involved in the contribution of this code 
that is common to Apache Tuscany and to Eclipse EMF?
If not, who were the other IBM employees?
If it accurate to categorize the code as "common to Apache Tuscany and to 
Eclipse EMF"? or would you prefer a different description?

This will answer a question for the "enhanced pedigree review" of the 
Tuscany code so that we can ship SOA Feature Pack Iteration 1.

Regards,
Paul Golick

Thank goodness, common sense applies :-)

Now we can proceed with the release candidate.

Thanks,
