Subject Fwd: FW: [ANN] xml-commons-resolver-1.0 released as independent component]
Date Wed, 13 Nov 2002 13:11:01 GMT
Please use the commons-dev@xml.apache.org mailing list for any
questions about the XmlResolver, so that the rest of the community can
see it as well.

That's a good question though: Since xml-commons may produce several
small .jar or other resource files that folks may want to conveniently
reference, what is the easiest way to post them?  I see your point
about having a directory name "foo-latest/foo.jar" be the -latest, and
leave the .jar file alone.  

Anyone else have comments?

Note that this also will raise the policy issue of hrefs and linking in
place: I don't think I want to encourage too much stuff posted on
xml.apache.org to be linked live from folk's applications.  That would
be too much bandwith on our server.  But I do want it to be easy for
anyone to quickly download the latest .jar or whatnot directly for
their use.

Oh, and thanks for the code goes all to Norman Walsh.  I just did the
schmutzy stuff of the build script and posting it.  8-)
