Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-597) Add more utility methods for generic types
Date Wed, 17 Mar 2010 18:37:27 GMT


Henri Yandell commented on LANG-597:

Can we have the patch without the Copyright statement at the top? It gets confusing to mix
all the various copyright statements in the source; instead Apache has an audit trail via
SVN, JIRA and signed documents to define the copyright mix on a project.

Minor note to avoid the static import as it makes the code less readable (though Matt and
I enjoy arguing on this one :) ). Also not liking all the imports to avoid fully describing
in the javadoc. I've not dug far into the code itself. Hoping Matt does :)
