Subject Re: [cli] (or [cli2]?) Plans for CLI 2.0 release?
Date Thu, 12 Nov 2009 16:35:34 GMT
The 2.0 version was abandoned and finally ended up moving out of a
branch and into the sandbox as a separate component. No plans that I
know of to release something that no one wants to support - but feel
free to get involved and invite others to get involved if there are
Apache projects who want to support it.

It should possibly be renamed to avoid the suggestion that it is the
successor to CLI1, I suspect it's entirely likely that CLI1 could have
a much lower impact v2 of its own.
