Subject RE: CVS Dataset Config Usage?
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2007 13:31:41 GMT
G'day

Not at this stage, I am not in a position to support it. (Plus I don't own
the intellectual property and now is not the time to be asking the
organisation I work for to release it.)

That being said I am hoping at the end of this contract to make some kind of
contribution to JMeter, probably on the supporting infrastructure side.

Sounds cool, you not open sourcing it?
