Subject [vfs] split of vfs
Date Thu, 27 Jul 2006 10:50:49 GMT

The pressure to release VFS is getting higher and higher :-)

And maybe there is a solution to restart the release cycle even with all
the open stuff not solved.

Whats missing to release VFS:
*) commons-compress release
*) webdav-client (slide) release
*) solving the jcifs licensing issue

If we split VFS in two pieces

- commons-vfs.jar
- commons-vfs-sandbox.jar

it might be manageable. The sandbox jar isn't releasable, its a sandbox
- so no additional work.

Initially, this sandbox contains the following filesystems:
* bz2
* tar
* webdav
* smb

The user can activate them by simply plugging the
commons-vfs-sandbox.jar into the classpath.

What do you think?
