Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] OpenCMIS incubator for Content Mangement Interoperability Services (CMIS)
Date Fri, 11 Dec 2009 18:57:19 GMT
Well, here is a citation from (section "The
Foundation Incubator"):

"It must be noted that the incubator (just like the board) does not perform filtering on the
basis of technical issues. This is because the foundation respects and suggests variety of
technical approaches. It doesn't fear innovation or even internal confrontation between projects
which overlap in functionality."

I've been personally asking myself recently wether it would be  
feasible to drop Abdera in favor of JAXB in Chemistry, so IMHO it's  
something that should be discussed together and not a division line  
for us.

It would be great if you could contribute one.

OK, I'm new to this Apache thing, but I don't believe this is the  
Apache Way. See: or
