Subject name for 3.0 stuff (was: Re: Potential F2F design session for 3.0?)
Date Thu, 09 Nov 2000 11:25:08 GMT
Eventually this stuff has to grow in scope to cover related things like
WSDL tooling, UDDI-related stuff etc. to be really a Web services
infrastructure (which is what app developers really need IMO; the
transport part is obviously necessary, but not sufficient). How about 
calling the new thing "Apache Web Services Project" and under that 
create a sub-project called "Runtime Engine" as James suggested. 
We could call it the "Web Services" project for a short version.

That'd leave room for us to grow without having to another re-org. 
Even if Apache doesn't become the host for some of the other stuff
(for e.g., I think there's an open-source UDDI project on sourceforge
already), the umbrella is an accurate description and from an Apache
Software Foundation point-of-view a location to host a collection of
related projects.
