Subject Re: OGNL as a part of Commons
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2011 12:20:45 GMT
>From Commons HP[1] "The Commons is an Apache project focused on all
aspects of reusable Java components" here we use to speak about Math,
Digester, BeanUtils, ... as components and not projects, there are no
exceptions you mentioned.

Moreover, since EL[2] and JXPATH[3] found their home here at commons,
I don't see a different reason for OGNL to live elsewhere.

The legal issue is a problem that needs to be seriously taken in
consideration, BTW AFAIK OGNL left OpenSymphony for a new place[4]
(domain seems to be expired) and Lukasz is the only one OGNL
maintainer - please Lucasz correct me if I'm wrong.
