Subject Re: Releasing transports 1.0 - dependency resolutions
Date Thu, 02 Apr 2009 21:15:22 GMT
Hi folks:

First, many thanks to Jarek for getting the transport move going - I got
sucked into other stuff today and probably won't be able to dive back in for
real until Sunday.  Just talked to Jarek on IRC and he's hoping to finish the
move tonight or tomorrow.

That said.... I'm not very happy about the idea of leaving important tests in
the WS-Commons area if the code they're testing is actually in Axis2.  This
smells of bad refactoring and future confusion.

I want to get Axis2 1.5 out ASAP, and am willing to do whatever gets us there
quickest, but after that I'd like to have another discussion about how to
correctly host and factor the transports code.  This should dovetail nicely
with another round of the "Splitting WS" conversation, which I'd like to have
at the same time.
