Subject Re: Contrib section (nee Re: A modest proposal for simplifying zookeeper :)
Date Fri, 27 Feb 2009 15:44:34 GMT
i'm ready to reevaluate it. i did the contrib for fatjar and it was 
extremely painful! (and that was an extremely simple contrib!) we really 
want to ramp up the contribs and get a bunch of recipe implementations 
in, so we need something that makes it really easy. i'm not a fan of 
maven (they seem to have chosen a convention that is convenient for the 
build tool rather the developer), but it is widely used and i we need 
something better, so i'm certainly considering it.
